Biography:

Dr. Millard is the Deputy Division Director of the division of Engineering Education and Centers (EEC), within the Engineering Directorate at the National Science Foundation. He is also currently serving as the Acting Division Director. Since coming to NSF in 2010, he has been involved in the Advanced Technology Education (ATE) program, the EHR Core Research (ECR) program, the Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program, the Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program, and the Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (TUES) program. Prior to joining NSF, Dr. Millard spent 27 years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. During his many years at Rensselaer, he served as a faculty member of the Electrical, Computer, and Systems Department and directed a number of research centers; including the Center for Integrated Electronics.

Dr. Millard's research interests include engineering education, electronics design, electronics manufacturing, electronic media development, information technology, electrical testing methodologies, semiconductor fabrication, and non-destructive inspection and evaluation. He is the founder of the Mobile Studio project, which enables students to learn and perform experiments that use an oscilloscope, function generator, digital control, and some form of power supply - at anytime, anyplace. He holds a patent for the development of a laser-induced, plasma-based Non-Contact Electrical Pathway and has received such awards as the Best Paper Award of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) and the Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware. Dr. Millard has been voted Professor of the Year on three occasions, selected as RHA Professor of the Month and was chosen as the Eta Kappa Nu Outstanding Professor.
