The ACM bestows this honor on those members with at least 15 years of professional experience who have made significant accomplishments or achieved a significant impact on the computing field. Among the recipients of this honor are computer scientists and engineers from leading corporations, research labs, and universities.
Nord is a senior member of the technical staff at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) where he works to develop and communicate effective methods and practices for software architecture. Prior to joining the SEI, he was a member of the software architecture program at Siemens Corporate Research, where he balanced research in software architecture with the design and evaluation of large-scale systems. He earned a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University. Nord is a co-author of Documenting Software Architectures: Views and Beyond, Second Edition, published by Addison-Wesley, and he lectures on architecture-centric approaches.
SEI Director Paul Nielsen said, “This is a great honor in ACM and recognizes Rob’s significant accomplishments during his productive and innovative career. We are very proud that Rob has received this fitting recognition from his peers.”
