for distinguished research leadership. "
The IEEE Medal of Honor, established in 1917, is the
highest IEEE award. It is presented when a candidate is
identified as having made a particular contribution that
forms a clearly exceptional addition to the science and
technology of concern to IEEE.
Dr. Madni served as President, COO & CTO of BEI
Technologies Inc. from 1992 until 2006. His major
contributions with worldwide impact include the Extremely
Slow Motion Servo Control System for the Hubble Space
Telescope's Star Selector System, which provided the
Hubble with unprecedented accuracy and stability, the
revolutionary MEMS GyroChip®
Dr. Ramesh is an IEEE Fellow and founding Director
of California State University, Northridge's (CSUN)
internationally recognized AIMS2 program that mentors
and supports Latino/Latina students and underrepresented
minorities in engineering.
Dr. Ramesh is a professor of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at CSUN, established programs to serve
industry practitioners in renewable energy, assistive
technology, and advanced manufacturing. As 2016-2017
Vice President of the IEEE Educational Activities Board,
he championed collaboration, diversity, and inclusive
excellence, through innovative programs like the IEEE
Learning Network (ILN).
Dr. Ramesh has served on the Boards of IEEE, ABET,
and HKN.
technology, used worldwide
for Electronic Stability Control and Rollover Protection in
passenger vehicles, and RF and microwave systems and
instrumentation, which significantly enhanced the combat
readiness of the US Navy (and its allies).
The IEEE-HKN Board of Governors established the Asad M.
Madni Outstanding Technical Achievement and Excellence
Award in 2019 as its highest award.
The award is the first-ever endowed award for IEEE-HKN,
made possible through a generous donation from the
Madni family and a matching gift campaign.

President-Elect of Accreditation Organization
2016 IEEE-HKN President
S. K. Ramesh, Ph.D. was elected
the 2021-2022 President-Elect for the
Accreditation Board for Engineering
and Technology (ABET) by the ABET
Board of Delegates.
ABET is a nonprofit organization
that accredits college and university programs in applied
and natural science, computing, engineering, and
engineering technology.
2019 IEEE-HKN President Elected a 2021 Fellow
of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI)
Dr. Karen Panetta, 2019 IEEE-HKN
President and founder of Nerd Girls,
was elected a Fellow of the National
Academy of Inventors (NAI).
The honor recognizes her " prolific spirit
of innovation in creating or facilitating
outstanding inventions that have
made a tangible impact on the quality of life, economic
development and the welfare of society, " according to
the announcement from the NAI. Election to NAI Fellow
status is the highest professional distinction awarded to
academic inventors.
Dr. Panetta is the Dean of Graduate Education and
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering at
Tufts University, Medford, MA. Her research focuses on
developing efficient algorithms for simulation, modeling,
and signal and image processing for security and
biomedical applications. Under her leadership, Panetta and
her team have developed artificial intelligence (AI) software
that has the potential to improve medical and dental
diagnostics. Recent work by the lab includes AI software
that can identify cases of COVID-19 pneumonia from x-rays
and CT scans, and an AI program that reviews panoramic
dental x-rays and alerts clinicians of results that require
closer inspection.
