When the history of Microelectronic Engineering is written, there will be a long chapter devoted to Dr. Lynn Fuller. Dr. Fuller completed his BS and MSEE degrees at RIT in 1970 and 1973. He joined the electrical engineering faculty in 1970, and made RIT's first transistors in 1978 teaching a senior level professional elective course in semiconductor devices. That course, along with Dr. Fuller's dedication, led to the launch of RIT's program in Microelectronic Engineering. At that time, no other university in the world had attempted to educate undergraduate students in the area of micro-e. Dr. Fuller was given founding responsibility for the development and implementation of the program, funding and creation of the laboratory facility, and development of the graduate programs in micro-e, including the creation of the RIT Microsystems Ph.D. Program.
