Nguyen elected IEEE Fellow
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Dr. Cam Nguyen, professor of electrical engineering and holder of the TI Professorship II in Analog Engineering, has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for his contributions to microwave integrated circuits and systems. Nguyen, who directs the department's Sensing, Imaging and Communications Systems Laboratory, joined the Texas A&M electrical engineering faculty in 1990. His current research interests include RF, microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits and systems, ultra-wideband components, antennas and systems, sensors, subsurface sensing, and mine and UXO detection and classification technologies. Nguyen has written one book, several book chapters and more than 140 papers. He is editor-in-chief of Subsurface Sensing Technologies and Applications: An International Journal and editor of Subsurface and Surface Sensing International Book Series, as well as a member of the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. Among his honors are the TEES Fellow Award and the 3M Faculty Fellow Award, both from Texas A&M Engineering. Nguyen received his bachelor's degree from California Polytechnic University, his master's from California State University at Northridge, and his Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida, all in electrical engineering. Nguyen is one of 18 faculty members in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M to reach the rank of Fellow, a significant honor because the number of IEEE members who may be advanced to Fellow grade in one year is 0.10 percent of the total 320,000 institute membership. IEEE describes the honor as "one of unusual professional distinction conferred only by the [IEEE] Board of Directors upon a person of extraordinary qualifications and experience." To be considered, candidates must have made an outstanding contribution to the electrical and electronics profession.
