Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Northeastern University, 1962. Master of Science, Stanford University, 1963. Doctor of Philosophy, Stanford University, 1966.
He holds the Ernest Cockrell, Junior. Centennial Chair in Engineering. In 1965, Patt introduced the WOS module, the first complex logic gate implemented on a single piece of silicon.
He is a fellow of both the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Association for Computing Machinery, and in 2014 he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
Patt received his bachelor"s degree at Northeastern University and his master"s degree and doctorate at Stanford University, all in electrical engineering. Patt has spent much of his career pursuing aggressive ILP, out-of-order, and speculative computer architectures.
East.g. HPSm, the High Performance Substrate for Microprocessors.
Patt is also the co-author of the textbook, Introduction to Computing Systems: From Bits and Gates to C and Beyond, currently published in its second edition by McGraw-Hill, which is used as the course textbook for his undergraduate Introduction to Computing class at University of Texas at Austin as well as the introduction Computer Engineering course at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Introduction to Computer Systems at University of Pennsylvania and Computer Organization and Programming at Georgia Institute of Technology. lieutenant is in this textbook that the LC-3 Assembly Language is introduced.
He is currently authoring the third edition In 2009, Patt received an honorary doctorate from the University of Belgrade.
