Welcome to the VI-A web-site and blog! VI-A was founded at MIT in 1917 and is 94 years old. I’m Professor Markus Zahn, Director of VI-A in EECS since l994. I am also a graduate of the VI-A Program (1965-1968) where I worked at Raytheon. My VI-A experience changed me from being a passive student to being an active contributing researcher and gave me the needed credentials to be admitted to the MIT doctoral program and then to be an EE professor for my career. My goal as VI-A Director is to provide opportunities and experiences for each VI-A student that launches their career with great success and satisfaction.
Kathy Sullivan, VI-A Administrator, and I encourage you to share your VI-A experiences, interests and comments through this blog so that VI-A students that follow you can benefit from your wisdom and experience as a VI-A student.
