IEEE Fellows


Each year the IEEE designates as FELLOWS many individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the electrical and electronics engineering profession. The IEEE Awards Office is the source for detailed information about eligibility and nominating procedures. The CSS has two standing committees, with non-overlapping membership, that participate in the Fellow selection process, under the supervision of the VP for Membership Activities. The Fellow Nomination Committee seeks out worthy candidates and nominators for those individuals. The Fellow Evaluation Committee evaluates the achievements of those nominees whose forms are forwarded to it by the their respective nominators. (Each nomination designates a relevant IEEE Society that should be asked to provide an evaluation of the candidate's achievements.) The chairs of these two committees, who must be IEEE Fellows and CSS members, are appointed by the BoG based on recommendations from the President-Elect and the Executive Committee. The chairs appoint the members of their committees. The Fellow Evaluation Committee, which should have at least six members, should be composed of IEEE Fellows whose joint expertise spans the breadth of technical specialties covered by the CSS.  You can find more information regarding the IEEE Fellow Program here, along with a complete listing of CSS Fellows, including the list of newly elevated Fellows.
