George I. Haddad is a Program Director for Circuits, Communications and Sensing Systems in the Division of Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems (ECCS) at the National Science Foundation(NSF). His research interests are in the areas of Microwave, Millimeter-Wave and Terrahertz Electronics and their applications in Communications, Sensing and Imaging Systems. Low-Power, Low-Noise and High-Efficiency  Mixed-Signal Electronics, and Failure Resistant Circuit and System Design.

Professor Haddad received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan in 1956, 1958, and 1963, respectively.  In 1963, he joined the University's Electrical Engineering faculty as Assistant Professor, and in 1965 was promoted to Associate Professor.  He became full Professor in 1969.  He served as Chairman of the Department from 1975 to 1986 and again from 1991 to 1997. He was appointed the Robert J. Hiller Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1990.  He is now the Robert J. Hiller Professor Emeritus of EECS.

Professor Haddad's long and distinguished career at the University of Michigan spans almost five decades of unparalleled achievement and leadership in research, teaching, service and administration.  During his tenure as chair, the department grew significantly in both reputation and size and established itself among the top five departments in the country.  Many outstanding faculty were added and the graduate research program experienced tremendous growth.  EECS at Michigan became a model department for other schools, primarily because of Professor Haddad's vision and leadership.  The impact of his contributions will be felt by many future generations of faculty and students.

In addition to his administrative and educational accomplishments, Professor Haddad is internationally recognized for his research and expertise in microwave and millimeter-wave devices and integrated circuits, microwave-optical interactions and optoelectronic devices, and integrated circuits.  Professor Haddad established and led a number of major research programs within the department in his roles as Director of the Electron Physics Laboratory (1969 to 1975), as Director of the Solid-State Electronics Laboratory (1986-1991), and as Director of the Center for High Frequency Microelectronics (1986-2000).  The impact Professor Haddad has had on the field of microwave devices and circuits has inspired and motivated others.  He has graduated nearly 60 Ph.D. students, many of whom have become distinguished educators and industry leaders.
