"In slightly more than 50 years, UC San Diego, under the leadership of Marye Anne Fox and her predecessors, has become one of the world's top universities," Khosla said. "I feel fortunate, humbled and energized to have the opportunity to contribute to that excellence while embracing the challenges of integrating world-class research with an undergraduate educational experience that will remain accessible to all, regardless of family income."


Khosla, grew up in Mumbai and completed his graduation from IIT Kharagpur in 1980, with a degree in electrical engineering. He did his MS and PhD in electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon.
