Dr. Daryl Beetner, professor of electrical engineering and director of Missouri S&T’s Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Laboratory, has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
“This recognition means a lot to me,” Beetner says. “It’s wonderful to be included with this group of exceptional researchers and be commended for my work in the field.”
The IEEE Fellow Committee noted that Beetner was selected due to his contributions to measurement, modeling and prediction of electromagnetic immunity and power integrity issues.
IEEE has over 400,000 members throughout the world and is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology. Less than 0.1% of its voting members are selected annually as Fellows.
Beetner joined the Missouri S&T faculty in 1998 as an assistant professor, and he was promoted to associate professor in 2004 and professor in 2010. In 2014, he was named chair of electrical and computer engineering at S&T, and he held this position until 2020.
He has also served as director for S&T’s EMC Laboratory since 2020, as well as director of the Center for Electromagnetic Compatibility, which is a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center.
Missouri S&T’s EMC Lab is the largest university-based lab of its kind in the world.
Beetner is an expert in electromagnetic immunity and emissions from the integrated circuit to the system level. He has published five patents or invention disclosures and over 180 reviewed papers.
He has been a member of IEEE since 1998 and has chaired multiple committees for the organization since then. He is also a member of the organization’s EMC Society Board of Directors.
Beetner earned a doctorate and a master’s degree, both in electrical engineering, from Washington University in St. Louis. His bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering is from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.
