Monday, September 12, 2016

WNCG Student Ahmed Kord recently received an IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Doctoral Research Grant for his work entitled “New Frontiers in Electromagnetic Metamaterials Using Active Circuits.”

The award, worth $2,500 is designed to help fund and continue Kord’s education in the field of electromagnetics. Each year, the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society awards up to six, $1,000 pre-doctoral scholarships and about ten $2,500 PhD fellowships to encourage students to pursue a career in electromagnetics. The awards support students involved in research directed by a faculty member who is a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.

At WNCG, Kord is advised by Prof. Andrea Alù.
