SMTA is honored to announce Rajesh Sharma Sivasubramony, a graduate student at Binghamton University, has been selected as the winner of the 2022 Charles Hutchins Educational Grant.

The SMTA Grant Committee selected Rajesh’s project entitled "Reliability of Printed Interconnects for Flexible Hybrid Electronics Applications." He obtained his bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2010 from the University of Kerala, and a Master's degree in 2016 from Binghamton University. He recently completed an internship with the Design for Reliability group at Tesla which introduced him to real-world reliability pain points concerning Electric Vehicle (EV) electronics and their risk assessment.

The Charles Hutchins Educational Grant was established in memory of past SMTA president, educator, mentor, and industry colleague, Dr. Charles Hutchins. The $8000 grant has been presented annually since 1998 to a full time graduate-level student pursuing a degree and working on thesis research in electronics assembly, electronics packaging, or a related field.

The award will be presented in person at the 2022 SMTA International Conference, October 31 - November 3, 2022 in Minneapolis, MN, USA.
