Zaborszky Distinguished Lecture Series

The Annual Zaborszky Distinguished Lecture Series was created in 1990 to honor Professor John Zaborszky, the founder and first chairman of the Department of Systems Science & Mathematics (now the Preston M. Green Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering). Professor John Zaborszky passed away in 2008. Each year, a distinguished scholar is invited to present a series of three lectures in his or her field of expertise.
