Professor honoured with fellowship for pioneering work

Professor Deepak Uttamchandani

A Strathclyde academic has been elevated to the fellowship of the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for 2019.

Professor Deepak Uttamchandani, the Head of Centre of Microsystems and Photonics within the Faculty of Engineering, is one of only a tiny percentage of the institute’s voting members to receive the accolade.

The IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organisation for the advancement of technology with more than 423,000 members in more than 160 countries.

Professor Uttamchandani, who has been at the University for more than three decades and was previously Associate Deputy Principal and Vice Dean of Research, was chosen in recognition of his contributions to photonics-based sensing.

This technology – which makes measurements using light - is applied for detailed examination of the eye during tests to detect early signs of disease such as macular degeneration.

Professor Uttamchandani, who is also a past recipient of the IEEE Sensors Council Technical Achievement Award and the Thales Scottish Technology Prize for Laser Technology and Applications for his work on a prototype laser system, said: “I’m delighted and honoured to receive the Fellowship. Not only is this truly international recognition for my own achievements, but for my faculty and for the institution as a whole as I’ve been here for my entire professional life.

“That’s as important to me as the individual recognition.”

The IEEE membership is made up of engineers, scientists, and other professionals including computer scientists, software developers and physicists.

Fellowships are awarded after a rigorous vetting process where candidates must be nominated by another Fellow and provide detailed evidence of their work.

They recognise outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest and the total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one- percent of the total voting membership.
