The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has announced its 2022 IEEE Fellows, with numerous Indian American engineers making the cut.

The IEEE Fellow Award is a special recognition for members with extraordinary accomplishments in the IEEE technical fields. To ensure that the recognition is extraordinary, the total number of recipients each year cannot exceed 0.1% of the total higher grade membership.

Following are the Indian Americans who were newly elevated to IEEE Fellow, in addition to several Indian-origin honorees across the world.
