Editorial Board

Our Editorial Boards consists of educators and engineers who all have made significant contributions to engineering and education through their teaching, research, and writing. These advisors serve to recommend and advise on acquisitions, emerging technologies, software and hardware integration, and overall ways of enriching technical education.

James H. McClellan

James H. McClellanJames H. McClellan received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from LSU in 1969, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Rice University in 1972 and 1973, respectively. Since 1987, he has been a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, where he presently holds the John and Marilu McCarty Chair. He is the co-recipient of the 2004 Jack S. Kilby Signal Processing Medal from the IEEE. Prof. McClellan is a co-author of the texts Signal Processing First, Number Theory in Digital Signal Processing, Computer Exercises for Signal Processing, and DSP First: A Multimedia Approach.

  • Fellow of IEEE

Charles G. Sodini

Charles G. Sodini received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology from Purdue  University in 1974. After graduating from Purdue, Sodini went on to become a Technical Staff Member, and later Project Leader, at Hewlett Packard Labs. While at HP, Sodini continued his studies and was awarded his Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering (1981) and Ph.D. (1982) from the University of California, Berkeley.

Professor Sodini has acted as a consultant for many top technology companies in the U.S., and in 1999 he co-founded SMaL Camera Technologies, which develops digital imaging solutions for a variety of business and consumer markets, including ultra-slim digital still cameras, automotive vision systems, and camera-enabled mobile devices.

An active member of IEEE, Sodini has served as President of the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society, as well as General Chair of the IEEE VLSI Circuits Symposium and the International Electron Device meeting. Sodini began teaching at MIT in 1983, and his courses include Integrated Microelectronic Devices, Microelectronic Devices and Circuits, and Design of Analog integrated Circuits, among others. Sodini’s research interests are in the broad area of integrated circuits and systems with emphasis on mixed signal circuit design. He currently holds nine patents, is a die-heart Red Sox fan, and the co-originator of the forthcoming Modular Series of Microelectronic Device & Circuit Design.


Fawwaz T. Ulaby

Professor Fawwaz T. Ulaby is the Emmett Leith Distinguished University Professor and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Michigan.

He is a Life Fellow of IEEE, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and recipient of the IEEE James H. Mulligan, Jr Education Medal. Over his academic career, he has supervised over 115 graduate students.

His publication list includes 16 books and over 700 journal articles and technical reports. He received the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.


Robert D. Strum 1924-2008

Robert D. Strum was a professor of electrical engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School and the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. He passed away November 21. He lived a long life well, and will be missed by his family, friends and colleagues at NTS Press. Strum was an author of popular engineering textbooks and the recipient of many honors and awards during his distinguished teaching career. His programmed Laplace Transform book still rolls along almost 40 years from publication. Strum was creative as he was unique. We are grateful to him for his counsel, friendship and good tidings. Much of our publishing philosophy has his imprint on it and the quote about education on the “About Us” page of this web site was suggested by him. It was typical of his perceptiveness to be one step ahead of the curve but never outside the unit circle.
