Stanford Engineering Hero- Professor Don Knuth: "All Questions Answered" (WEBINAR)

Friends of Stanford and anyone unable to attend the live event are welcome to sign up for the online webinar, hosted by the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD).

 

For nearly a century, Stanford has been at the forefront of the engineering revolution in virtually every sector of the profession. The professors and graduates of the Stanford School of Engineering have helped people the world over to live healthier, happier, easier, more efficient and more connected lives. In the truest sense, they have changed the world.

The Stanford Engineering Heroes program recognizes the achievements of Stanford engineers who have profoundly advanced the course of human, social and economic progress through engineering.

Accordingly, the School of Engineering is delighted to introduce Professor Emeritus Donald Knuth – author of the seminal work The Art of Computer Programming – as a Stanford Engineering Hero.

Professor Knuth will be the guest of honor at this special event on the evening of May 12. Knuth will briefly discuss his work and then enterain queries from the in-person and online audiences. In his typical self-deprecating style, the Professor warns: “the audience should be aware that the answers will be my best shot, though those outside the field of The Art of Computer Programming may have somewhat less credibility than a Wikipedia article.”
