Prof. Tarek S. El-Bawab

Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Communications MagazineIEEE

Professor, Jackson State University, USA

Short Biography

Tarek S. El-Bawab is with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Jackson State University (USA). Before this he was with Alcatel-Lucent USA (now Nokia) as Project Manager with the Network Strategy Group (CTO organization). Earlier, he was involved in networking research with a number of organizations, including Alcatel-Lucent; the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Colorado State University (USA); and the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering, University of Essex (UK). Before this he led large-scale international telecommunication projects in the Middle East for 10 years.

Dr. El-Bawab research interests include telecommunications, network architectures, optical networks, performance analysis, telecom standards, and engineering education. He has more than 70 scholarly journal/conference papers and patents. His book Optical Switching is one of the most comprehensive references in its subject. He is the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Communications Magazine, the Series Editor of Springer’s Textbooks in Telecommunication Engineering, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) member, and NSF Review Panelist.

Tarek led the Telecommunication Engineering Education (TEE) initiative and movement (2008-2014), which resulted in recognition of network/telecommunication engineering as distinct ABET-accreditable education discipline on November 1, 2014. He is the first recipient of the IEEE Communications Society’s (ComSoc) Education Award due to this work (2015). The citation of this award reads: “for outstanding contributions to the definition, and to the accreditation criteria, of modern communication/telecommunication engineering education; and for making changes to our education system that benefit our community, society, and the profession.

He has served IEEE and the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) in numerous capacities. He is Board Member of the ComSoc Board of Governors (2014-2015, 2018-2019), and Board Member of the ComSoc Educational Services Board (since 2012). He is the ComSoc Director, Standards Development (2018-2019); and served as the society’s Director, Conference Operations (2014-2015). He served as Board Member of the IEEE Educational Activities Board, EAB (2016-2017), and is currently Member of the EA’s Committees on Standards Education and Continuing Education. He is a founding/active member of several ComSoc technical committees, and was elected Chair of the Transmission, Access, and Optical Systems (TAOS) Technical Committee for two terms. Tarek has served as symposium chair, workshops Chair, and organizer in several ICC/Globecom Conferences, and organized/chaired the ICC/Globecom International Workshop on Optical Networking Technologies (IWONT) for 10 years. He is also member of the IEEE Computer, Electron Devices, Photonics, Education, and Intelligent Transportation Systems Societies.

Dr. El-Bawab has a B.Sc. in electrical engineering, and a B.A. in history, both from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt. He holds an M.Sc. in solid state science from the American University in Cairo, and an M.Sc. in telecommunications and information systems from the University of Essex, UK. He obtained his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Colorado State University.
