Electrical and computer engineering (ECE) Professor Emeritus Hung C. "Jimmy" Lin has given $100,000 to his department for the creation of the Jimmy Lin Fund for Innovation and Invention. The goal of the gift is to promote innovation among ECE students, staff and faculty by stimulating, encouraging and rewarding the invention and patenting process.

The fund, to be administered by the department, will help innovative students, staff and faculty to move their ideas through the complicated and often pricey patenting process.

"As engineers it is our duty to make sure that our innovations result in better lives for people," said ECE Chair Pat O'Shea. "Professor Lin's gift will enable us to stimulate and reward the process of launching our inventions beyond the walls of the University, so that they can do good things for society."

Lin is a past inductee of the Clark School's Innovation Hall of Fame.
