Benjamin Klein to Coordinate ECE ABET Activities

Primary tabs

Benjamin D.B. Klein will join Senior Associate Chair Mary Ann Weitnauer to coordinate the activities necessary to maintain the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) accreditation for the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

Currently an ECE associate professor, Klein first joined Georgia Tech as an ECE faculty member based at the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus in 2003, and in 2012, he transferred to the Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta.

While at the Georgia Tech-Savannah campus, Klein was the faculty advisor of the IEEE student branch and was a member of the student awards committee. He has taught a wide range of courses, including Microelectronic Circuits, Laser Theory and Applications, Electromagnetics, Semiconductor Devices, Optical Engineering, Engineering Software Design, Optoelectronics, and Electro-Optics. In 2010, he received the Georgia Tech Class of 1940 Outstanding Teacher Award.

Klein’s research involves the modeling of semiconductor optoelectronic devices, including vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers, LEDs, scintillator neutron detectors, and solar cells. He has served as the chair of the optics and photonics technical interest group since 2011 and is a past member of the Institute’s Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.

Klein received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1994, 1995, and 2000, respectively.  From 2000-2003, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, where he worked on semiconductor quantum dot-based devices.
