Sharing the Blessing of Education

Roy Cornely

I believe that sharing our blessings with other people, including our global society, is essential to provide meaning to our lives.

From my fifty year career as a researcher at the Sarnoff Labs in Princeton and Professor of ECE at NJIT, I naturally look with favor on funding for technical education and research. My career enables me to see clearly the challenge to Universities to provide outstanding education and research with limited funding. Our nation's future is highly dependent on meeting this challenge. There is a strong correlation between the valuable products made today, which are both used in the US and exported, and the research and educational programs that were part of the last five decades.

My career accomplishments as described in a brief biosketch on Google (Roy H. Cornely Biosketch) were rooted in the education obtained at Drexel. Particularly valuable were my coop experiences at a company manufacturing the first commercial computers, Dean Disque's reading program on nontechnical topics (which were helpful in drawing on the intellectual opportunities in the Princeton community) and the development of my social being provided by Sigma Pi and the Greek society. I feel deeply indebted to Drexel for my in-class and out-of-class undergraduate education.
