WIE March 9th Meeting special guest speaker, Mr. Dean A. Sutter His presentation, “The Influence of Future Disruptive Electronic Based Technologies in Enabling Abundance in the US and Around the Globe,” is one you will not want to miss! In this presentation, Dean will attempt to effectively introduce the concepts of ABUNDANCE, and DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES along with why we should care about enabling GLOBAL ABUNDANCE. Dean will discuss how by solving the world’s basic needs for food, clean water, energy, health, safety and security using disruptive electronic based technologies each of us will benefit in the US, and provoke attendees to think about how the same technologies can be used to provide us with an improved lifestyle can also be applied to solve global problems in 2nd and 3rd world countries. In this talk Dean will introduce topics such as IoT, Miniaturized Sensors, Wireless Technologies, Flexible Electronics, Computing Materials, and others being explored at GT, connecting them to products used in our daily lives while providing insights as to where these products are heading in the future connecting them to various markets such as Heathcare, Automotive, Energy, etc. After graduation from the DeVry University, Dean held various technical and managerial positions in both the high volume manufacturing and research sectors in the field of Microelectronics; working for IBM East Fishkill, and Georgia Tech (GT), respectively. At IBM, his involvement ranged from silicon crystal wafer growth, I/C device fabrication, to advanced ceramics packaging and flip chip assembly, including plant and manufacturing operations and engineering. In 1994, Dean came to Georgia as part of the founding leadership team for the 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (PRC) at GT, a highly successful National Science Foundation, Engineering Research Center, which to date has raised over $300M in support of advanced packaging research and development. The PRC continues to maintain a strong global industry base from supply chain to OEMs. He is currently the Associate Director at the Institute of Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech, a recently launched Interdisciplinary Research Institute where his primarily focus is on developing stronger industry/university relationships in support of growing the electronics oriented research portfolio at Georgia Tech, accelerating technology transfer, all leading to economic growth in electronics in the State of Georgia.
