NJIT researcher Roberto Rojas-Cessa receives Innovators Award from NJ Inventors Hall of Fame

October 30, 2013

Roberto Rojas-Cessa, PhD, of Brooklyn, NY, an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), received an Innovators Award from the New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame (NJIHoF). Dr. Rojas-Cessa was honored for his renowned research in the areas of broadband and high-speed networks and a wide range of computer communication technology applications. The awards, which recognize significant scientific achievement and contributions to innovation in the Garden State, were presented at a formal banquet on October 17, 2013 at the W Hotel in Hoboken, NJ.

Dr. Rojas-Cessa joined NJIT in 2002, where he has been involved in the design and implementation of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for biomedical applications and high-speed computer communications and in the development of high-performance and large-capacity packet switches. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and other institutions. He received the Newark College of Engineering Excellence in Teaching Award in April 2013.
