What is Caltech In...?

Did you know that more than 15,000 Techers are living, working, and building their lives in major metropolitan areas in the United States? Imagine the intellect, potential, and wit at a table of Techers. Engineers to financiers, academics to founders, astronomers to artists, Caltech alumni are a mutual source of support and camaraderie.

Come connect with your local Caltech community and meet Techers who live and work (and maybe play Quacks of Quedlinburg) in your city.

Caltech In San Diego

Mead received the 2022 Kyoto Prize for his pioneering contributions to the field of electronics, which include proposing and promoting a new methodology to divide the design process of very large-scale integration (VLSI) systems into logic, circuit, and layout designs, and separating them from the manufacturing process. He also contributed greatly to the advancement of computer-aided design technology, paving the way to VLSI design automation and facilitating the revolutionary development of today’s VLSI-based electronics and industry.

This special Fireside Chat will be based on Mead’s official Kyoto Prize presentation.
