Microsoft’s leader and UWM alumnus Satya Nadella honored by National Academy of Engineering

Satya Nadella

In February, the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) elected Satya Nadella— Microsoft chairman/CEO and UWM alumnus —as a new member. This is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

Nadella earned a master’s in computer science from UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science in 1990.

In naming him a member, the NAE cited Nadella’s role in advancing corporate computing infrastructure as a cloud service, and for international leadership on sociotechnical systems and practice.
