Thomas Roth, a senior in electrical engineering and computer engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, has received a scholarship award from the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
Roth, of Weatherby Lake, Missouri, is one of 10 students who will receive the $1,500 MTT-S Undergraduate/Pre-graduate Scholarship for Fall 2014. He will be recognized during the 2015 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, held May 16-22, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona. The award also includes a travel stipend to fund Roth’s attendance at the symposium.
The scholarship is designed to attract bachelor’s or master’s students to the microwave and RF discipline and to encourage them to pursue a job or a Ph.D. in the field.
News of his scholarship will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Microwave Magazine.
Dr. Reza Zoughi, the Schlumberger Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at Missouri S&T, is Roth’s advisor. Zoughi is director of Missouri S&T’s Applied Microwave Nondestructive Testing Laboratory.
