Ryan elevated to IEEE Senior Member

Sarah Ryan, professor of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, has been selected to be an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Senior Member. IEEE Senior Membership is an honor bestowed only to those who have made significant contributions to the profession. Senior Members are recognized for their technical and professional excellence, and are eligible to hold executive IEEE volunteer positions and to refer and review senior membership applications.

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence. Only 7 percent of IEEE members attain the level of senior member, which requires 10-plus years of professional experience and significant contributions, achievements, publications and course development or technical direction in IEEE-designated fields.
