Prof. Max Ammann elevated to grade of IEEE Fellow

Professor Max Ammann, CONNECT Principal Investigator at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), has been elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow.

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with “an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest.” IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional association, comprised of over 395,000 members in 160 countries.

Congratulating Max, Prof. Luiz DaSilva, CONNECT Director, said: “This is much-deserved international recognition of Max’s contributions to antenna technology and propagation. The total number of IEEE Fellows selected in any year cannot exceed 0.1% of the total voting IEEE membership. It is also a visible indication of the high quality of telecommunications research we conduct in CONNECT.”
