Vittoria named Life Fellow of IEEE

January 20, 2009

Professor Carmine Vittoria has been elected a Life Fellow of the IEEE for for his contributions to the understanding of the microwave properties of magnetic materials and their applications in microwave technology.

Professor Carmine Vittoria is a distinguished professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He specializes in development of new microwave materials. The materials include ferrites, ferroelectrics, superconductors, magneto-dielectrics, composite electrical and magnetic materials, magnetic super lattices, nano particles and sub-micron planar devices, and fundamental excitations in magnet-dielectric materials.

The IEEE Life Members' Fellowship in Electrical History supports one year of full-time graduate work in the history of electrical science and technology at a college or university of recognized standing, or up to one year of post-doctoral research for a scholar in this field who has received his or her Ph.D. within the past four years. The stipend is $17,000, with a research budget of up to $3,000. The IEEE Fellowship in History of Electrical and Computing Technology is funded by the IEEE Life Members’ Committee and supports historical research in any area covered by an IEEE Society. IEEE has thirty-eight separate Societies and seven technical Councils covering a broad range of electrical and computing engineering.
