Professor wins prestigious Bellman Award
Recognizing his “fundamental contributions to the theory of large-scale systems, decentralized control, and parametric approach to robust stability,” the American Automatic Control Council recently awarded the prestigious Richard E. Bellman Control Heritage Award to Dragoslav D. Siljak, professor of electrical engineering. Honoring distinguished career contributions to the theory or application of automatic control, this award is the highest recognition of professional achievement for US control systems engineers and scientists.
“To be singled out by this eminent organization is a tremendous honor and indicates a level of career accomplishment few achieve. We are fortunate, indeed, to have someone of Drago’s caliber on our faculty,” said Godfrey Mungal, Dean of the School of Engineering. Further evidence of Siljak’s eminence: his 1991 book, Decentralized Control of Complex Systems, was recently ranked No.1 in sales on Amazon.com in two categories, Systems and Control Systems.
