We have an outstanding group of world-renowned faculty who are leaders in their respective research domains. IDS faculty have served as IEEE Society Presidents, as Editors-in-Chief, Senior Area Editors and Associate Editors of top IEEE journals, and as General and Technical Chairs of premier conferences,  symposiums, and workshops in various areas.  They have recognized as IEEE Fellows, and have been elected to the US Air Force Scientific Advisory Board, to the IEEE Society Board of Governors, and various  IEEE technical committees. All faculty who were eligible to participate have won the NSF CAREER  award.
