Mo-Yuen Chow, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State University was named the recipient of the 2020 Dr.-Ing. Eugene Mittelmann Achievement Award for substantial technical contributions and leadership in Industrial Electronics technologies from the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.
The Achievement Award was first presented in 1975 to recognize outstanding contributions in industrial electronics. Administered by the Industrial Electronics Society Awards and Honor Committee (IES A&H Committee), it is given for a single major accomplishment or for a career of recognized achievements. The award is not necessarily given yearly and is only awarded when suitable candidates can be identified.
Notably, Chow joins the mere 37 recipients since this prestigious award’s founding, including Troy Nagle, a Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State, who received the award in 1990.
Chow earned his degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (B.S., 1982); and Cornell University (M. Eng., 1983; Ph.D., 1987). Chow is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. Chow was a Changjiang Scholar at Zhejiang University.
Chow’s recent research focuses on distributed control and management, smart micro-grids, batteries, and mechatronics systems. He has established the Advanced Diagnosis, Automation, and Control Laboratory. He is an IEEE Fellow, the Co-Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Trans. on Industrial Informatics 2014-2018, Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics 2010-2012. He has received the IEEE Region-3 Joseph M. Biedenbach Outstanding Engineering Educator Award, the IEEE ENCS Outstanding Engineering Educator Award, the IEEE ENCS Service Award, the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Anthony J Hornfeck Service Award. He is a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.
