In 2011, Tunc (BSEE ’79) and Lale Doluca created the Doluca Professorship in Electrical and Computer Engineering to advance the mission and vision of the department and to make a major impact on the college’s ability to recruit and retain faculty, raising the caliber of the engineering educational experience at Iowa State University. The Doluca Professorship will be awarded to a leading faculty member with a preference for specialized teaching or research in analog and mixed signal integrated circuit design.
Tunc Doluca joined Maxim Integrated Products as a design engineer in 1984, two years after the company was formed. Early in his career, he was noted for his success at identifying product opportunities with strong demand in the marketplace and his ability to build successful business units that capitalized on these opportunities. Through a technical leadership position at Maxim, Doluca rose to president and CEO of the company, positions he has held since 2007.
