As of Jan. 1, 2008, Brigham Young University professors Michael Allen Jensen and David Long will become fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology.
The grade of fellow is only conferred upon senior IEEE members who have made significant contributions to any of the organization’s fields of interest. The honor is a major achievement, as no more than one-tenth of the voting IEEE membership is granted fellowship in any given year.
Jensen and Long are both from BYU’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Jensen, who serves as department chair, received the advancement for his contributions to antennas and propagation for mobile devices and multi-antenna wireless communications systems.
Long, who directs the BYU Center for Remote Sensing, earned the fellowship for contributions to systems and applications of radar scatterometry and synthetic aperture radar in land and ice studies.
