Alumna Named Black Engineer of the Year

ECE alumna Nancy Linton, a systems engineer at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md., was awarded the 2008 Black Engineer of the Year Award for Outstanding Technical Contribution in Government. The award was presented at the 22nd Black Engineer of the Year Awards Conference in Baltimore, on Feb. 16, 2008.

Another alum, Rodney Oddoye (B.S. '02, electrical engineering), received a Modern Day Technology Leadership Award at the same ceremony. Oddoye works for BGE as a senior engineer.

Linton joined APL in 2005, and develops, tests and evaluates electronic countermeasure systems in support of the U.S. military. Her analysis of one particular system not only reduced testing costs and minimized the need for additional testing, but also identified several ways to better protect deployed forces.

Linton earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland in 1998, and Master's degrees in electrical and computer engineering and systems engineering, both from Johns Hopkins University. She is a member of the Society of Women Engineers, IEEE and the Association of Old Crows, a professional society for the field of electronic warfare, information operations and related disciplines.

"Throughout my career, I have always had mentors that taught, guided and challenged me to go farther than I thought I could go," says Linton. "Being recognized for this work is truly a great honor."

The Black Engineer of the Year Awards are sponsored by Career Communications Group, Inc., the Council of Engineering Deans of the Historically Black College and Universities, Lockheed Martin Corporation and USBE and Information Technology magazine.
