Robert Metcalfe is an electrical engineer with an estimated net worth of $250 Million Metcalfe gained his net worth as the founder of the pioneering digital electronics manufacturer, computer 3Com. He is the inventor of Ethernet. Metcalfe's thrush for engineering and technology sketched back when he was attending elementary school. The New Yorker was fascinated by gadgets and all things electrical. By the age of ten, Metcalfe knew he will be an engineer one day. Metcalfe took his first steps to engineering when he attended the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He graduated with two B.S degrees in Electrical Engineering and Business Management. Metcalfe went on to Harvard, earning a M.S. in Applied Mathematics in 1970 and Ph.D. in Computer Science three years later. Whilst studying at Harvard, Metcalfe developed an interest with the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) - the world's first operating system that shaped the internet. Metcalfe's fascination with ARPNET was so great, that he dedicated his doctoral dissertation on it. As well as working on his dissertation, Metcalfe worked at Xerox PACS, where he made his mark as an engineer. He invented the Ethernet the local area network that makes it possible to use PCs as communication devices. Metcalfe then moved to Xerox's system development division in 1976, where he was involved in developing the first ever PC to have a bit map screen, mouse, word processing, Ethernet plus software that make it possible to include text and graphic in the same document.
Robert Melancton Metcalfe (born April 7, 1946 in Brooklyn, New York) is an electrical engineer from the United States who co-invented Ethernet, founded 3Com and formulated Metcalfe's Law. As of January 2006[update], he is a general partner of Polaris Venture Partners. Starting in January 2011, he holds the position of Professor of Electrical Engineering and Director of Innovation at The University of Texas at Austin.
In 1964, Metcalfe graduated from Bay Shore Public High School. He graduated from MIT in 1969 with two B.S. degrees, one in Electrical Engineering and the other in Industrial Management from the MIT Sloan School of Management. He then went to Harvard for graduate school, earning his M.S. in 1970.
While pursuing a doctorate in computer science, Metcalfe took a job with MIT's Project MAC after Harvard refused to let him be responsible for connecting the school to the brand-new ARPAnet. At MIT's Project MAC, Metcalfe was responsible for building some of the hardware that would link MIT's minicomputers with the ARPAnet. Metcalfe was so enamored with ARPAnet, he made it the topic of his doctoral dissertation. However, Harvard flunked him. His inspiration for a new dissertation came while working at Xerox PARC where he read a paper about the ALOHA network at the University of Hawaii. He identified and fixed some of the bugs in the AlohaNet model and made his analysis part of a revised thesis, which finally earned him his Harvard PhD in 1973.
Metcalfe was working at Xerox PARC in 1973 when he and David Boggs invented Ethernet, a standard for connecting computers over short distances. Metcalfe identifies the day Ethernet was born as May 22, 1973, the day he circulated a memo titled "Alto Ethernet" which contained a rough schematic of how it would work. "That is the first time Ethernet appears as a word, as does the idea of using coax as ether, where the participating stations, like in AlohaNet or ARPAnet, would inject their packets of data, they'd trave
