Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of the IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for one of the Institute's most prestigious honors, elevation to IEEE Fellow.

The IEEE Board of Directors, at its meeting on 12 November 2008, elevated Dr. Wesley Snyder and Dr. Mehmet Ozturk to IEEE Fellows, effective 1 January 2009.

Dr. Snyder is recognized for contributions to education in robotics and computer vision.

Dr. Ozturk is recognized for contributions to silicon and silicon-germanium epitaxy in complementary metal-oxide semiconductor integrated circuits.

Within the next two months, they will receive their IEEE Fellow pin and certificate. Both serve as visible recognition of their elevation to the highest grade of membership in the IEEE.
