This year’s annual EECS Department awards event, the Spring Fling, was held in the MIT Museum–aglow with all kinds of engineering and scientific displays and art that invite interaction. A 6:30pm reception was followed an hour later with the awards event as all headed up the gleaming staircase to the presentation area.

Department Head Eric Grimson and Associate Department Heads Duane Boning and Srini Devadas ran the ‘show’ announcing and handing out close to 60 awards to students, staff and faculty members. Congratulations to all! Enjoy the photos of those who were present to celebrate and please be in touch if you have other photos of the event that you could share with us!
