Home page: Yale N. Patt

(or, at least a weak attempt at a home page. I did succumb some time ago to the insistence that I must have a home page. However, I do not seem to be able to find time to first learn and then do what needs to be done to make it an impressive homepage.)

Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
Ernest Cockrell, Jr. Centennial Chair in Engineering, and
University Distinguished Teaching Professor,
The University of Texas at Austin

Actually, I do have another picture, taken in a museum in Cyprus in June, 1995 by Greg Egan, professor at Monash University, ...and one at HPCA-12 in Austin, February, 2006.

Also, Haydn's interpretation of me at a UT Halloween, 2003 costume party.

My curriculum vita in .pdf is available here, ...and a one-page bio there.

For graduate students thinking about doing research in computer architecture with me, you might want to read this.

Note: I have recently received a number of requests from new graduate students wishing to TA EE460N in Fall, 2016. After looking at their backgrounds, it is clear they should take EE460N in Fall, 2016. In fact, we have found that very few students have had a course in computer architecture equivalent to EE460N before they arrive, and should plan on taking EE460N their first semester here if they plan to do serious work in computer architecture or embedded systems. I have been told that EE460N should also be in the course of study for software students and integrated circuits students, but I will leave that decision to your research advisor.

If you are planning on taking EE460N/382N.1 in fall, 2016, and find yourself unable to register, please come to the first class. My experience suggests that although the room may be full on day one, enough will drop when they find out the workload in the course, so if you are sincerely interested, there should be plenty of seats in the room.
