During the 2015 Annual Meeting at SMTA International, the SMTA announced that Hanju Oh, a graduate student at Georgia Institute of Technology, has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Charles Hutchins Educational Grant. The SMTA Grant Committee selected his project entitled "A Three-Dimensional Packaging Platform with Integrated Microfluidic Cooling."
In the Fall of 2016, Hanju will receive his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from Georgia Institute of Technology. Hanju earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea in 2010.
The Charles Hutchins Educational Grant, co-sponsored by the SMTA and Circuits Assembly magazine, was established in memory of past SMTA president, educator, mentor, and industry colleague, Dr. Charles Hutchins.
