Professor, Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering
While completing his doctoral degree, Dutta worked as a Council for Scientific and Industrial Research Fellow at the Indian Institute of Science, in Bangalore, India. Subsequently, he served as a visiting scientist at the Universidad Autonoma in Madrid, Spain and at the Solid State Physics Laboratory of Delhi, India. He joined Rensselaer in 1996 as a research associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, and Mechanics. Three years later, he was appointed as a research assistant professor in the Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering Department. In 2000, he was offered a tenure track assistant professor position.
