Biography summary

Sujeet K. Chaudhuri is an Electrical and Computer Engineering Adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo. In recognition of his sustained outstanding scholarship and academic leadership, Professor Chaudhuri was installed in 2004 as the O’Donovan Research Chair of RF/Microwaves and Photonics at the university. He was previously the Chair of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department from 1993 - 1998 and the Dean of the Engineering Faculty from 1998-2003.

Under Professor Chaudhuri’s leadership, initially as the Chair of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department and later as the Engineering Faculty Dean, the university experienced unprecedented growth. The research budget of the faculty tripled, new buildings were added, and new undergraduate programs like Software Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering were successfully introduced. Several graduate/research programs were also new additions to the university. As the Chair of the National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Sciences (NCDEAS), Professor Chaudhuri provided new visions and progressive leadership to the Engineering Profession in Canada. Due to his initiatives, NCDEAS now enjoys a prominent consultative role with the Governments and the private sector in North America.

Current research interests of Professor Chaudhuri include guided-wave/electro-optic structures, planar microwave structures, dielectric resonators, optical and EM imaging, fiber based broadband network and the emerging technologies based on the EBG/PBG-nanostructures. Additionally, Professor Chaudhuri is a member of URSI Commission B, and Sigma Xi.
