Georgia Tech graduates with gold and white balloons falling.

Summer Class Joins Alumni Cohort

Many School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) students slogged through the dog days of summer defending theses and dissertations to complete their degrees. As of Aug. 12, the degree confirmation date for summer graduates, these students can now call themselves alumni of Georgia Tech.

“Our students’ success is not only important to Georgia Tech, but also to the field of CSE,” said Haesun Park, Regents’ Professor and chair of the School of CSE. “Our faculty and staff strive to provide the best environment where each student can flourish to one’s maximum potential.”

Five School of CSE students received their doctoral degrees this summer. They are:

  • Siddharth Biswal (Ph.D. CS 22) advised by School of CSE Adjunct Professor Jimeng Sun
  • Rahul Duggal (Ph.D. CS 22) advised by School of CSE Associate Professor Polo Chau
  • Srinivas Eswar (Ph.D. CS 22) advised by Park and Professor Rich Vuduc
  • Ali Siahkoohi (Ph.D. CSE 22) advised by School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and School of CSE Professor Felix Herrmann
  • Haowen Zhang (Ph.D. CSE 22) advised by School of CSE Professor Srinivas Aluru

Along with the five Ph.D. graduates, two students completed their Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering degrees. New School of CSE MS alumni are:

  • Fu Shen (MS CSE-CSE 22)
  • Brandon Whitchurch (MS CSE-CSE 22)

Two other School of CSE students completed their master’s degrees as part of their doctoral degree track. They are:

  • Dongjin Choi (MS CSE-CSE 22) advised by Park
  • Shahrokh Shahi (MS CSE-CSE 22) advised by School of CSE Associate Professor Elizabeth Cherry

“Our graduates do extremely well by attaining high demand positions at national labs, industry, government agencies, and faculty at academic institutions,” Park said. “These graduates will lead and carry out the vision and mission of the CSE academic field.”
