Honors College Professor Stuart Long has been awarded the 2018 IEEE AP-S Chen-To-Tai Distinguished Educator Award, for his commitment to electromagnetics education through teaching, research, and the development of programs to attract students into electromagnetics and engineering.
Long has been a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UH for the past 44 years, and he is currently the associate dean of the Office of Undergraduate Research in the Honors College. In 2009, he was named the first recipient of the UH Career Teaching Excellence Award, and in 2010 he received the Esther Farfel Award, the highest faculty award given at the University.
His research interests are focused in the field of applied electromagnetics and more specifically in microstrip and dielectric resonator antennas. Long earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from Rice University and a doctoral degree in applied physics from Harvard University. His 2018 IEEE AP-S Chen-To-Tai Distinguished Educator Award will be recognized at the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting and Award Ceremony in July.
