Sung Kyu Lim and Christopher Rozell have both been honored with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: Class of 1934 Award. They were formally recognized at CTL’s Celebrating Teaching Day, which was held on March 10, 2020. 

For this year, courses taught during the calendar year 2019 were considered. The criteria for selection for the award included a student response rate of 85% and above. CIOS scores were based on the sum of three scale items: (#16) instructor’s respect and concern for students; (#17) instructor’s level of enthusiasm about teaching the course; and (#18) instructor’s ability to stimulate interest in the subject matter.

Lim was recognized for his outstanding teaching in ECE 6133: Physical Design Automation of VLSI Systems. He taught this course to 76 graduate students during spring 2019. This course focuses on various design automation problems in the physical design process of VLSI circuits. It also covers issues such as logic partitioning, floorplanning, global routing, detailed routing, compaction, and performance-driven layout. 

Lim is a professor and has been on the ECE faculty since 2001. He leads the Georgia Tech Computer-Aided Design Lab. 

Rozell was recognized for his outstanding teaching in ECE 8801: Are You Thinking of Becoming a Academic? during fall 2019. He taught this course to 67 graduate students, combined from all four sections, during fall 2019. This course is cross-listed with the Schools of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The course focuses on seeking positions at top tier research universities and covering topics such as the application and interview process, building and funding research groups, and mentorship. 

Rozell is a professor and has been on the ECE faculty since 2008. He leads the Sensory Information Processing Lab.
