RICHARDSON, Texas (Dec. 11, 2001) - The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Inc., has elected U.T. Dallas School of Management Professor Suresh Sethi to one of its top honors, naming him an IEEE Fellow. Dr. Sethi’s election will take effect on Jan. 1.

IEEE President Joel Snyder cited Sethi’s contributions in control and optimization of management and economic systems in announcing his election to the organization’s highest grade of membership.
