Vandal Engineering News
Greetings Alumni and Friends:
Over the past couple years in the college of engineering we have made the success of our students a high priority. We made some significant changes such as hiring a Director of Student Services, turning over the awarding of student society support funds to our student leadership, and establishing Engineering Scholars for our highest achieving students.
Last month marked another milestone towards our pursuit of student success—the dedication of the John C. Wahl Think Tank. Adopting a “client service” model, The John C. Wahl Think Tank is becoming a one-stop-shop for student success that will help students navigate the services of the university, support internships, recruitment and retention services, support student societies, and more.
Greg Wahl, from the Frances and John Wahl Foundation, was on campus to participate in the dedication. We had a packed house during the presentation and Ron Olson, chair of the Think Tank campaign recognized the many people who have contributed to the project so far. With the facility scheduled to be completed in a couple weeks, the focus of this campaign turns to the services to the students.
I'd like to announce the recognition of two of our outstanding faculty in electrical engineering. Fred Barlow received the John A. Wagnon, Jr. Technical Achievement Award during IMAPS 2011 (International Microelectronics And Packaging Society) in Long Beach, California, October 9 - 13. During the same conference Aicha Elshabini received the President's Award for 2011. Finally, our IMAPS student chapter earned a first place award in the technical competition.
I hope you are enjoying the fall weather and looking forward to the coming holiday season. As always, I welcome your comments. Thank you.
"University of Idaho began by working with Wind River and NSA to develop a set of design and coding guidelines for VxWorks MILS 3, and now we are in the process of providing the formal evaluation of their secure product," said Dr. Jim Alves-Foss, director of the Center for Secure and Dependable Systems.
The Center for Secure and Dependable Systems at the University of Idaho was established in response to the overwhelming need for computer-related security education and research. CSDS is an interdisciplinary effort, where undergraduate and graduate students work alongside faculty from four colleges as well as external partners at INL and PNNL.

A leadership gift in the will of Randall "Randy" Litton, B.S. 1961 in electrical engineering, will help support one of the greatest needs of the College of Engineering, the Endowed Chair for Electrical and Computer Engineering. Randy’s generosity will create tremendous opportunities for students and faculty and allow the college to continue our legacy of developing outstanding leaders.
Sean Litton echoes, “My Dad loved the University of Idaho.”
Born in Idaho Falls in 1939, Randy earned a law degree in 1965 from George Washington University and was regarded as one of the top patent litigators in the country. He passed away in 2010 in Grand Rapids, Michigan leaving behind a beautiful family including children Stephanie, Sean and Emily, many grandchildren and a legacy of generosity and kindness.
Engineering the Future
Idaho’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) student chapter was instrumental in the successful Women in Engineering Day which took place on October 21. Forty-three high school students came to campus for an exciting day which included a team design project and a highly engaging presentation of why our students chose engineering and what it means to them.
