Shuo Wang Elevated to IEEE Fellow

ECE professor Dr. Shuo Wang has been elevated to the rank of IEEE Fellow, for contributions to reduction of electromagnetic interference in electronic systems.

Dr. Wang’s research has helped to greatly improve the performance, safety and reliability of all types of electronic systems while reducing their cost and size. His pioneering work on the modeling, measurement, and reduction of electromagnetic interference in power electronics systems has shown that electromagnetic compatibility is no longer to be regarded as an “Art” which was only mastered by few exceptional engineers with years of experience, but rather, a “Science” which can be mastered and contained.

Dr. Wang earned his Ph.D., Master and Bachelor degrees from Virginia Tech, Zhejiang University and Southwest Jiaotong University respectively. He received 2012 NSF CAREER Award, the IEEE Power Electronics Society best transaction paper award and has been awarded several IEEE best conference paper awards. To date, Dr. Wang has published more than 170 IEEE journal and conference papers. He holds eight issued US patents and 15 pending US/International patents. He is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications and a technical program Co-Chair for IEEE 2014 International Electric Vehicle Conference. He has been a principal investigator for 26 sponsored research projects.

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one- percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.

The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology for humanity. Through its 400,000 plus members in 160 countries, the association is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.

Dedicated to the advancement of technology, the IEEE publishes 30 percent of the world’s literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, and has developed more than 1300 active industry standards.  The association also sponsors or co-sponsors nearly 1700 international technical conferences each year.  If you would like to learn more about IEEE or the IEEE Fellow Program, please visit
