Computer Science Faculty Member Receives IEEE Award

Aug. 28, 2006

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology, recently awarded the membership grade of Senior Member to Dr. Paul C. Grabow, Associate Professor of Computer Science. With only 7.6 percent of IEEE's 367,000 members achieving this level, Senior Member requires experience reflecting professional maturity.

Through its global membership, the IEEE is a leading authority on areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics among others. Members rely on the IEEE as a source of technical and professional information, resources and services.

To foster an interest in the engineering profession, the IEEE also serves student members in colleges and universities around the world. The student chapter of IEEE at Baylor University is an active group within the School of Engineering and Computer Science.

Dr. Grabow came to Baylor in 1990 after serving on the faculty of the University of Texas at Arlington for five years and in the Software Engineering Division at Hughes Aircraft Company. He received his undergraduate degree from Luther College and his masters and doctorate at Northwestern University. Dr. Grabow's areas of research interest include the specification of real-time systems as used in software engineering and the cultural issues related to computer science.
