Agilent Exec Wins a Prestigious Honor

Darlene Solomon, Ph.D., Agilent’s chief technology officer, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering.  This is one of the highest professional honors in technology.

The National Academy of Engineering is an independent, non-profit organization that advises the U.S. government on issues related to technology and engineering.  Individuals cannot apply for membership.  They are nominated by current members, then voted on by the entire NAE membership.

“Darlene is an excellent choice for membership,” says Agilent CEO Mike McMullen.  “She is a true visionary who understands the power of science built on engineering fundamentals.”

Dr. Solomon has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Stanford University and a doctorate in bioinorganic chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  “Becoming a member selected by one’s peers is a very special recognition of contribution,” she says.  “I am deeply honored to be part of this distinguished academy.”

Dr. Solomon is in impressive company.  Previous NAE members include Bill Hewlett and David Packard, the founders of our predecessor company, Hewlett-Packard.
