Dugald Caleb Jackson (February 13, 1865 – July 1, 1951) was an American electrical engineer. He received the IEEE Edison Medal for "outstanding and inspiring leadership in engineering education and in the field of generation and distribution of electric power".[1] Jackson headed the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1907 to 1935.[2] He was proponent of student and faculty involvement with industry.[2] Jackson established research as a part of engineering education at MIT and coordinated it with practical experience in industrial settings (for example, with the General Electric Company), and his model spread widely.[2][3]
