The University of California, Irvine Henry Samueli School of Engineering has announced the creation of a new endowed Presidential Chair in electrical engineering and computer science, named in honor of a former Samueli School dean and his wife, Nicolaos and Sue Alexopoulos. Sue Alexopoulos is a long-time supporter of the Samueli School and a charter member of the ARCS Foundation Orange County Chapter, which supports UCI graduate students studying science, medical research and engineering. She has also been active on the organization’s national board.
The UC Irvine Samueli School of Engineering is planning a special event with a banquet to honor Nick and Sue for their excellent service and contributions over the years for the benefit of engineering and science students. Sue, in particular, will be honored for her service and leadership for the ARCS Foundation in Orange County as well as at the National level.
