Edwin Chong, professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers for his contributions to communication networks and discrete event systems.

The IEEE Fellow is one of the most prestigious honors of the IEEE and is bestowed upon a very limited number of Senior Members who have made outstanding contributions to the electrical and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession. The number of IEEE Fellows elected in a year is no more than one-tenth percent of the total IEEE voting membership. This year 260 new Fellows were elected.

Chong came to Colorado State in 2001 from Purdue University. He is the co-author of the recently published book: An Introduction to Optimization.
