Dr. Jimmy H. C. Lin

In January 2008, Dr. Jimmy H. C. Lin created the Jimmy Lin Fund for Innovation and Invention with a generous gift. The goal of the gift was to promote innovation among ECE students, staff and faculty by stimulating, encouraging and rewarding the invention and patenting process, and to help students, staff and faculty move their ideas forward through the complicated and often expensive patenting process.
