Dr. Sherif Rashad, professor of computer science at Morehead State, has been elevated to the grade of senior member by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), an honor bestowed only to those who have made significant contributions to their profession. 

Senior membership is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply and it is based on significant contributions to the profession. Only about one in ten IEEE members holds this prestigious grade, which is conferred to those with extensive experience and reflects professional maturity. IEEE senior members are recognized for their technical and professional excellence and are eligible to hold executive IEEE volunteer positions and to refer and review senior membership applications. 

Rashad recently led the effort to introduce new degree concentrations in data science and computer engineering starting in fall 2020. His research interests include machine learning, data science, mobile computing and cybersecurity. He received several research awards and his research papers have been published in many international journals and IEEE conferences.

IEEE is the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity through its more than 425,000 members in more than 160 countries and its high-impact, highly cited, prestigious publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
