Since the beginning of this year, several George Mason faculty members have been honored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., (IEEE).

Bijan Jabbari of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and John N. Warfield of The Institute of Public Policy received the organization’s Third Millennium Medal. According to IEEE, the award recognizes “individuals whose outstanding contributions made a difference to the engineering profession and to the world in general.” Jabbari received the award for his contributions to multi-access, mobility, and teletraffic in wireless communications, and Warfield received it for his contributions to Systems, Man, and Cybernetics.

In addition to receiving the IEEE Third Millennium Medal, Andrew Sage of the Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research received the 2000 IEEE Simon Ramo Medal for outstanding contributions to the field of systems engineering. The Simon Ramo Medal was established in 1982 and is awarded for significant achievement in systems engineering and systems science. It comes with a cash award of $20,000. It was last awarded in 1996.

Other faculty members who have been honored by IEEE in the past include Peter Denning, Mark Pullen, David Rine, and Harry Wechsler of Computer Science; Gerald Cook, Yariv Ephraim, Janos Gertler, Alexander Levis, and Harry Van Trees of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Lloyd Griffiths, dean of the School of Information Technology and Engineering.
