In the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting held during 7 - 12 July 2019 at Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A., our faculty members, PhD student and graduates were presented with the most significant international awards and certificates for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the field of antennas and propagation.
Many EE alumni participated in the conference including Dr Bisharat Diaaaldin J M, a PhD graduate in 2019 and now a Postdoctoral Scholar at University of California San Diego, was there to receive the IEEE AP-S John Kraus Antenna Award (the highest award in the antenna field globally) on behalf of the awardee, Professor Daniel Sievenpiper, his postdoctoral supervisor.
Founded in 1949, the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society is an international and highly recognized organization active in over 40 countries. It is wonderful that our EE faculty, students and graduates were given the highest honour and extensive recognitions by this prestigious, leading international society. Please join me to congratulate all of them being so strong and distinguished in the named area!
Prof Hong Yan, our EE Chair Professor and Acting Dean, has been offered the title of Wong Chung Hong Professor of Data Engineering which is supported by The Endowed Professorship Scheme of CityU.
Endowed professorship represents the highest honour that a university can bestow upon a scholar for his/her outstanding academic and research achievements. It is also a lasting tribute to the donor who establishes the endowment.
Prof C H Chan, Chair Professor of EE, has been selected to receive the 2019 IEEE AP-S Harrington-Mittra Computational Electromagnetics Award. The citation for this award is “For fundamental contributions to fast solutions of integral equations using FFT with applications to scattering, antennas and interconnect structures in homogeneous and layered medium”.
Each year, the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S) recognizes individuals or groups of individuals who have made an impact on technology or the society in distinct ways. The Harrington-Mittra Award is one of the Field Awards set up by IEEE AP-S to recognize distinguished contributions based upon technical achievements and/or excellence in education and teaching. The Harrington-Mittra Award in Computational Electromagnetics was established in 2013 to recognize the past technical accomplishments and future potential of an outstanding contributor to the area of Computational Electromagnetics.

Prof Ron Chen has been put on the Top Scientist List for the year 2019 in the field of Computer Science and Electronics based on the H-Index metric provided by Google Scholar. Prof Chen is ranked the 1st in Hong Kong and ranked 14th worldwide by H-Index of 143 and 92,809 citations.
The H-Index metric is a measure to quantify both the productivity and research impact of scientists based on the number of their publications in addition to the number of incoming citations to their publications. To know more you may check here.
Prof Ron Chen was honored to receive one of The President’s Awards (TPAs) 2018. TPAs recognize faculty who have made exemplary contributions to research and professional education that have helped CityU achieve local and global distinction. Prof Ron Chen is surely a very outstanding model to all of us. His significant achievements and contributions to the department and the University in all-round aspects earn him this great honor.
Congratulations to Prof Tommy Chow for being elected the Fellow of IEEE, with effect from 1 January 2019, for his outstanding contributions to computational intelligence techniques for control systems diagnosis.
With this achievement, our Department now boasts 15 IEEE Fellows. We have many internationally well-known scholars in our Department and it is expected that we will have more IEEE Fellows in the years to come.
