Professor of aeronautics and astronautics earns the field’s highest honor for developing the algorithms that designers use to optimize aerodynamic performance; it is Jameson’s third major honor in what has been an extraordinary year for this Stanford aeronautics expert.
Antony Jameson, professor of aeronautics and astronautics, has won the Daniel Guggenheim Medal, which is considered one of the highest honors presented for a lifetime of achievement in aeronautics. Past recipients have worked in industry, government and academia, and have included Orville Wright, Charles Lindbergh, William Boeing and William Durand.

Stanford Engineering Hero Charles Simonyi talks about creating first WYSIWYG software, space travel and challenges of making a profit
Computer Science alum shares stories about working with Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, and his two flights to the International Space Station.
Modern word processing software makes it easy to design and print attractive documents. But it wasn't always so, and much of the credit for this convenience goes to pioneering computer scientist Charles Simonyi, who was recently honored as a Stanford Engineering Hero.
Since 2010 the Heroes program has recognized Stanford engineers who have profoundly advanced human, social and economic progress through engineering.

Now billions of questions can be answered in about three minutes.
Stanford engineers have partnered with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to set a computational record. Stanford Professor Charbel Farhat and his research team at the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) used a new, high-end, massively parallel computer to demonstrate the power of algorithms that instruct processors to work together to solve challenging problems.
