A "2013 LEADERSHIP SERIES SALUTE" Goes out to Dr. Matthew Sadiku for being honored as a 2013 IEEE Fellow

Sadiku Honored as 2013 IEEE Fellow

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has named Prairie View A&M University’s Dr. Matthew N. O. Sadiku as a 2013 IEEE Fellow, one of only 297 senior members from around the world selected for the prestigious title.

Sadiku, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering, was recognized by the international organization in mid-April for his contributions to computational electromagnetics and engineering education. The IEEE senior member earned his place in the elite group for his important contributions to the advancement and application of engineering, science and technology that “brings the realization of significant value to society.”

“If you have a wireless phone, use a wireless laptop, an iPhone or almost anything that uses wireless technology,” said Sadiku, “you’re probably using science that comes from research in data computer communications and numerical modeling of electromagnetic problems.”

His College of Engineering colleagues, led by Dean Kendall T. Harris and Associate Dean Shield Lin, recently honored Sadiku for outstanding accomplishments.

Sadiku has spent 27 years as a professor in university classrooms and research laboratories, the last 11 at PVAMU. During that time, he has served as the major professor for 16 masters and Ph.D. graduates. His vita also includes over 55 presentations for conferences, seminars, radio and television. He has authored 40 books and over 200 technical papers.

A prolific writer, Sadiku exhibits the expected keen interest in the sciences. Somewhat unexpected, however, is his authorship of book topics that explore the humanities. He has written classroom textbooks like Fundamentals of Electric Circuits (McGraw-Hill 5th ed., 2013), and Solutions Manual for Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics with MATLAB (CRC Press, 3rd ed. 2009). Alongside these highly technical publications are at least 11 non-technical books carrying titles like, Secrets of Successful Marriages (Covenant Publishers, 1991), and Choosing the Best: Living for What Really Matters (Bloomington, in: AuthorHouse, 2012), to name only two.
