Constantine A. Balanis
- IEEE Electromagnetics Award
A prolific author and innovative educator, Constantine A. Balanis inspired and sustained active teaching of antennas and graduate electromagnetics courses and provided invaluable resources for practicing engineers. When academia and industry needed an updated and modernized resource for antenna students and engineers, Balanis authored Antenna Theory: Analysis and Design (Wiley, 1982), now in its fourth edition. In 1989, he wrote Advanced Engineering Electromagnetics (Wiley). Both books have become the gold standards in their respective fields, providing thorough and detailed descriptions and elucidations while presenting cutting-edge technologies.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Balanis is a Regents Professor of Electrical Engineering with the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA.
