Villanova Engineering’s Dr. Robert Caverly Elevated to Life Fellow Status of IEEE


Dr. Robert Caverly, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been elevated to Life Fellow status of IEEE.  This special honor is reserved for individuals who have distinguished themselves through their sustained and lasting contributions to the organization. Dr. Caverly has been recognized “for contributions to modeling and design of radio frequency switching devices.” He is the author of more than 100 journal and conference papers and two books, CMOS RFIC Design Principles and Microwave and RF Semiconductor Control Device Modeling. He also serves as editor-in-chief of the IEEE Microwave Magazine and general chair of the 2020 IEEE Radio and Wireless Week series of conferences (RWW2020). From 2014-2016, Dr. Caverly traveled the world as a Distinguished Microwave Lecturer, an IEEE MTT-S appointment for those recognized as experts in their fields. With his lecture on “RF Aspects of Magnetic Resonance Imaging,” Dr. Caverly was among a select few to be invited to this prestigious and key service for the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. A Villanova College of Engineering faculty member since 1997, Dr. Caverly teaches courses in Engineering Electromagnetics and Microwave Theory and Techniques at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.  Its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE describes itself as “the trusted ‘voice’ for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.”
