James Spall, chair of the Applied and Computational Mathematics Program in The Johns Hopkins Part-Time Programs in Engineering and Applied Science, has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
A Fellow is the highest grade of membership in the international organization. Spall received the honor for his contributions to the field in the area of mathematical algorithms as applied to stochastic (random) systems.
"After 20 years with Johns Hopkins University, four years of which have been with the Part-Time Engineering Program, Jim has more than earned this recognition," PTE Associate Dean Allan Bjerkaas said. "He is an integral part of the PTE staff and has added to the success of our programs. I speak for the entire faculty when I add my congratulations to Dr. Spall for this outstanding accomplishment."
The number of IEEE Fellows elected in a year is no more than 1/1000th of the total IEEE voting membership.
Spall lives in Ellicott City, Md., with his wife and two children. He earned his undergraduate degree from Oakland University in Michigan and completed his graduate work at MIT and the University of Virginia.
Part of the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering, the Part-Time Programs in Engineering and Applied Science offer masters degrees in 13 distinct disciplines, as well as undergraduate programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and engineering science. There are currently more than 2,200 students enrolled in PTE programs at seven education centers throughout the Baltimore/Washington area.
