Robert Meyer Receives IEEE Graduate Teaching Award
IEEE has named Robert Meyer as the recipient of the 2003 IEEE Leon K.
Kirchmayer Graduate Teaching Award. The award recognizes Meyer for his
distinguished teaching and mentoring methods, as well as the development
of teaching materials for microelectronic circuit design. Meyer is the
National Semiconductor Distinguished Professor at the University of
California at Berkeley's department of electrical engineering and computer
sciences. He is known worldwide for the distinction of his graduate
students and for his text co-written with Paul R. Gray, Analysis and
Design of Analog Integrated Circuits, in its 4th edition.
Meyer received his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, his
master's degree in engineering science, and his doctoral degree in electrical
engineering from the University of Melbourne, Australia. Since joining
the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1968, Meyer
has supervised more than 20 doctoral students and more than 60 master's
students who form a notable group of today's leading radio frequency
integrated circuit designers. Additionally, many of today's leading
analog bipolar IC designers have studied with Meyer.
A Fellow of the IEEE, Meyer has served the IEEE as president of the
IEEE Solid-State Circuits Council and as a member of the editorial board
of IEEE Press. He has earned many awards and honors, including the J.J.
Thomson Premium award from the Institution of Electrical Engineers for
research on noise in transistor mixers.
The award was presented on 10 February at the 2003 IEEE International
Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco, California. Sponsored
by Olga T. Kirchmayer, the award recognizes inspirational teaching of
graduate students in the IEEE fields of interest.
