Michael Jensen named chair of BYU Electrical Engineering Department

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University received a new chair in June.

Michael Jensen replaced outgoing department chair Lee Swindlehurst, who returned to full-time teaching in the department.

Jensen received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from BYU. He completed his doctorate at UCLA in 1994 and joined the BYU faculty the same year. He has been active in teaching and research throughout his career, and holds the Newman and Zeneth Ward Chair in Electrical Engineering at BYU.

He received teaching awards in 2002 and 2003 as well as the Harold A. Wheeler Applications Prize Paper Award for one of his papers that appeared in the journal “IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.” He continues to serve as an editor of that journal and as an organizer for the 2007 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium.
