December 12, 2005

Professor Frank L. Lewis, Moncrief-O'Donnell Endowed Chair of Electrical Engineering and head of the Advanced Controls and Sensors Group at the Automation & Robotics Research Institute, has been named a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Measurement and Control. The Institute is a representative body in the United Kingdom for those engaged in the science and practice of measurement and control technology.

Election to Fellow is dependent on an individual successfully demonstrating, through technical or other roles, significant contribution to, and superior responsibility in, the industry. “It is an honor and a privilege for me to be so associated with the Institute of Measurement and Control,” said Lewis. “I shall work hard to continue to earn this distinction.”

Professor Lewis is also a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). He was selected as a charter member of The University of Texas at Arlington’s Academy of Distinguished Scholars in April 2004. The honor recognized his outstanding scholarly achievements and contributions to the University. He has served as a Visiting Professor at Democritus University in Greece, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, National University of Singapore. Dr. Lewis is an elected Guest Consulting Professor at both Shanghai Jiao Tong University and South China University of Technology. He is also a registered professional engineer in Texas.

He was appointed to the National Academy of Engineering’s Committee on the Space Station in 1995 and to the IEEE Control Systems Society Board of Governors in 1996. In 1998, Dr. Lewis was selected as an IEEE Control Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer. He is also a Founding Member of the Board of Governors of the Mediterranean Control Association. He secured $600,000 in research funding this year and expects to finish three books in the next two months.
