EMAB invites you to our 2nd CEO Talk for this semester. The talk is scheduled on April 24th from 6:30-7:30 pm in Towne 337. Our speaker, Dr. James C. Rautio, is the founder of Sonnet Software, an electromagnetic (EM) simulation software company. In sharp contrast to Vasu’s young software company, Sonnet was founded in 1983 and it has a proven track record of success in the industry of electrical and electronics engineering. During the session, Dr. Rautio will talk about his passion and vision that helped him build Sonnet for the past few decades. Dr. Rautio received his MS in system engineering at Upenn and he was also elected as an IEEE fellow in 2000. Do not miss this opportunity of hearing the story of passion, ingenuity and curiosity from a seasoned entrepreneur! The deadline to RSVP is April 20th. If you would like to attend, please RSVP here. Food and drinks will be provided. We will also give away raffle prizes at the end of the event. All are welcome!
