D. Solimini obtains the IEEE GRS-S Education Award
||The IEEE GRS-S Education Award has been established to recognize an individual who has made significant educational contributions to the field of GRS-S. In selecting the individual, the factors considered are significance of the educational contribution in terms of innovation and the extent of its overall impact.
The 2005 Education Award was presented to Prof. Domenico Solimini with the citation:
“In recognition of his significant educational contributions to Geoscience and Remote Sensing.”
Domenico Solimini has been with La Sapienza University till 1980, then, since 1981, he has been associated with the Tor Vergata University, Rome, Italy, where he has acted as Dean of the Boards of Electronics Engineering, of Environmental Engineering, of the GeoInformation PhD Programme, and has been chairman of the Department of Computer, Systems and Industrial Engineering. He has given courses on Antennas and Propagation (since 1966), Remote Sensing (since 1975) and Electromagnetic Fields (since 1979). His Remote Sensing course was the first of its kind in the Italian universities and the GeoInformation PhD he coordinates is an innovative multi-disciplinary programme with emphasys on Remote Sensing and its applications.
It is estimated that more than 3,000 students have taken these courses under Prof. Solimini and many of these students have assumed important roles in the Italian and International technical and scientific communities. Several of his former students are now tenured faculty members of major Italian universities.
