LSU F. Hugh Coughlin/CLECO Distinguished Professor in Electrical Engineering Guoxiang Gu was recently awarded the distinguished honor of being elected to the rank of IEEE Fellow. A landmark achievement, fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as the prestigious honor for electrical engineers.

"Professor Gu was elected for his contributions to robust identification and control. His election is a great achievement, serving as a confirmation to the world and recognition of LSU's ECE Department, which currently includes three IEEE fellows," said Jorge Aravena, interim chairman of LSU's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

IEEE annually holds a rigorous evaluation procedure, in which the Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for one of the IEEE's most esteemed honors. It is the world's largest professional association advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards and professional and educational activities.
