Father of high-speed, analog-to-digital conversion; Founder of Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program
Bernard M. Gordon is considered “the father of high-speed, analog-to-digital conversion.” He and his teams at Epsco Incorporated, Analogic Corporation, and NeuroLogica Corporation, have been responsible for dozens of engineering achievements, securing many hundreds of patents worldwide.
For his profound contributions to his profession and society, Bernie received the National Medal of Technology from President Ronald Reagan in 1986 and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1991.
His concern for the education of engineering leaders led to the establishment of the Bernard M. Gordon-MIT Engineering Leadership Program. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from MIT and numerous honorary doctorate degrees in engineering and science.
