Mung Chiang has been named one of seven international fellows of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. He serves as dean of the John A. Edwardson College of Engineering at Purdue University.
Chiang will be invited to an induction meeting for new International Fellows in the spring. He and Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne are the only two elected international fellows from the United States this year.
Chiang joins 59 engineers and scientists as International Fellows of the Royal Swedish Academy from the U.S., including Purdue professors Jan-Anders Mansson and Byron Pipes, as well as Subra Suresh, the former National Science Foundation director and Carnegie Mellon University president, and Vint Cerf, a “father of the internet.”
