Dean, University of Glasgow UESTC Professor Muhammad Imran has been given one of the most highly prized professional distinctions in Engineering by the IEEE

World-renowned Professor Muhammad A. Imran received one of his sector's highest accolades last month, when he was notified of his forthcoming elevation to the rank of IEEE Fellow.

The leading professional accreditation body for engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, told Professor Imran that the IEEE Board of Directors had, at its November 2022 meeting, elevated him to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2023, with the following citation:

for contributions to energy efficient and self-organized wireless systems

Of the process, they explained:

"Recognizing the achievements of our members is an important part of the mission of IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation."

An IEEE Fellow pin and certificate will soon be presented to Professor Imran, serving as visible recognition of his elevation to the highest grade of membership in the IEEE, brining honor both to him, and to IEEE, through his achievements.

Professor Imran, humble as always, reacted with praise for others, stating:

"This elevation and its credit goes out to all my team members, mentors, supporters, teachers and family members - they have practically enabled it and I am glad to redirect the full credit to where it belongs. Sincere thank you all!"

Professor Imran is Dean of University of Glasgow UESTC, Head of Autonomous Systems and Connectivity Division and Professor of Communications Systems.

IEEE is the world's leading professional association for electronic engineering and electrical engineering (and associated disciplines) and considers itself "the trusted voice for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe."
