31 Indian-Americans among IEEE newly elevated fellows


Thirty-one Indian-Americans are on the list of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ 2022 newly elevated fellows. This is a recognition all engineers treasure as the IEEE Fellow Award is given to members with extraordinary accomplishments in the IEEE technical fields.

To maintain the exclusivity of this recognition, the total number of recipients each year is never allowed to exceed 0.1% of the total higher-grade membership. Apart from the 32 Indian-Americans, Indian-origin engineers from around the globe are also on this list, according to a press note. Following is the list of Indian-Americans:
