Degree Check

OC Register Article
Vahid Manian, Broadcom’s senior vice president of global manufacturing, said he earned a bachelor of science in electrical engineering and an MBA at UC Irvine, according to his resume on the company’s Web site. But, although he attended the school from September 1979 to August 1983, Manian never earned a degree.

"Manian attended classes for four years, but did not graduate,” UCI spokeswoman Cathy Lawhon said. “Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act prevents (the university) from saying why he did not graduate. We have no record of him studying for or earning an MBA."

Not graduating after 4 years is one thing. Claiming a graduate degree when you didn't even earn your undergrad degree is crazy. Maybe he needed a job really bad.

Ironically, the engineering school at UCI where Vahid claimed he got his EE degree is currently named after Henry Samueli.
