Computer Engineering Senior Receives IEEE Award

Fiaz Bhuiyan

Fiaz Bhuiyan, computer engineering senior in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, received the Outstanding Student Award for Region 5 from IEEE.

Bhuiyan serves as president of the UT Dallas IEEE chapter and was appointed this spring as Regional Student Representative for IEEE Region 5, which includes 12 southwestern states. In those roles, Bhuiyan organizes events, workshops and competitions, and works to help students find a sense of community. He also is an undergraduate research assistant in bioengineering.

Bhuiyan said he is “truly honored and humbled by this award.”

“It would have not been possible for me to make the necessary contributions, create an impact or win this award without the support from the IEEE UTD team, IEEE Region 5 team and most importantly, UTD,” Bhuiyan said. “As an international student from Bangladesh, UTD has not only given me a world-class education, but it has also provided me with the resources to have an impact at the national and global levels. I express my sincere gratitude to each entity.”
