After more than 20 years of service, fall 2004 marked the last term at Colorado State for ECE Professor Gary Robinson. Engineering faculty, staff, alumni, students, and friends bid Robinson a fond farewell at a retirement reception at the College of Engineering's Internet Cafe on December 7.
Tony Maciejewski, ECE department head, presented Robinson with a commemorative watch on behalf of the ECE faculty and staff, and expressed gratitude and best wishes to him as he moves into retirement.
"Dr. Robinson's contributions to the ECE department have been invaluable," says Dr. Maciejewski, "but what sets him apart are the relationships he has built with his students over the years." He adds, "We wish him all the best in his retirement."
Since arriving at Colorado State in 1984, Robinson has taught courses in circuits, electronics, semiconductors, optoelectronic and microelectronic devices, integrated circuit design, and electromechanical devices. He also held visiting research positions with Hewlett-Packard Laboratories, the Perkin-Elmer Corporation, and the Naval Research Laboratory. Robinson is a Fellow of the IEEE and a member of the AVS.
Robinson plans to spend his retirement relaxing and sailing the Pacific Coast with his wife, Sharon.
