Hall of Fame The Hall of Fame section features the IEEE Fellows of the Toronto Section.
Prof. Adalbert Konrad FIEEE, received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees and the Ph.D. degree at the McGill University.
Prof.Konrad,is a professor at the University of Toronto and is interested in all aspects of theoretical and applied electromagnetics. In particular, I am interested in the subject of applied computational electromagnetics and in that context, the finite element method as it is applied to field problems. The applications cover devices in electrostatics, magnetostatics, eddy currents, and wave propagation. Current research topics of interest include electromagnetic-acoustic transducers for non-destructive evaluation, electromagnetic interference in power electronic circuits, and the analysis of various low- and high-frequency electromagnetic devices.
