Prof. Alireza Bakhshai, a graduate and former faculty member of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Isfahan University of Technology, and a professor at Queen’s University, Canada, has been named a 2021 IEEE Fellow.
The IEEE grade is the highest grade of membership in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. Achieving this grade plays an important role in promoting and applying science and technology in the contemporary world, leading to a significant increase in the quality societies.
Outputs of genuine and influential constant international scientific research are the prerequisites for obtaining the grade of membership in IEEE. Prof. Alireza Bakhshaei has achieved this outstanding scientific grade with more than two decades of persistent and successful scientific efforts in “the development of synchronization techniques for power electronics converters”.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) is a professional, non-profit international organization that aims to advance technology, in general; and electrical and computer engineering, in particular, around the world. It now has more than 400,000 members in 160 countries, the highest number of members in professional organizations in electrical engineering.
In the universities worldwide, the criterion for comparing the very leading universities in electrical and computer engineering is the number of people with this degree in those universities. It is worth mentioning that currently in Iran only 4 people have achieved this grade, one of whom was Dr. Golestani, a former professor at Isfahan University of Technology.
Other people who have achieved this position in Iran are:
– Dr. Jamaloddin Golestani, a former professor of Isfahan University of Technology and assistant professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology; 2000
– Professor Homayoun Hashemi, a former professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology; 2003
– Professor Javad Salehi, Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology; 2011
– Professor Mahmoud Fotouhi Firoozabad, Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology; Year 2014
