Dr. Noel Schulz


A Mississippi State faculty member is serving a three-year term on an editorial board that reviews and approves media policies for the global Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

Noel Schulz, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the university, recently was elected to the IEEE Press Board during a meeting of the organization's Publications Services and Products Board in Orlando, Fla.

"Dr. Schulz is a well-recognized electrical and computer engineering educator who specializes in electric power systems and brings a wealth of knowledge in her area of expertise," said Mo El-Hawary, editor-in-chief of IEEE Press.

In her new position that is renewable for up to nine years, Schulz will provide scientific expertise and guidance for the IEEE Press. She also will assist in making recommendations for policy improvements. Membership on the Press Board typically ranges from seven to 13.

"Over the years, faculty members have brought national recognition to our programs at MSU," said Jim Harden, head of the electrical and computer engineering department, a part of the Bagley College of Engineering. "Noel's appointment to the Press Board and her leadership role on the board of the Power Engineering Society build on this tradition."

Schulz received a doctorate in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1995. She received bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering in 1988 and 1990, respectively, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

A non-profit organization, IEEE is a leading authority in areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics. Considered the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology, it serves some 365,000 members in 10 global geographic regions.

The IEEE Press operates to serve information needs of the membership and profession by publishing high-quality books and electronic media and co-publishing with non-IEEE organizational units, and by distributing products of other publishers.
