Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Insitute for Systems Research
University of Maryland, College Park

William S. Levine received his Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph. D. degrees from M. I. T. He is currently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. Throughout his career he has specialized in the design and analysis of control systems and related problems in estimation, filtering, and system modeling. He has published over 100 articles on these and related topics. He has supervised 22 completed Ph. D. and 29 completed M. S. theses.

He is the co-author of Using MATLAB to Analyze and Design Control Systems, published by Benjamin/Cummings, March 1992. Second Edition, March 1995. He is the editor of The Control Handbook, published by CRC Press (in cooperation with IEEE Press), February 1996. The Control Handbook was named best engineering handbook published in 1996 by the Assoc. of American Publishers. He is the co-editor of The Handbook of Networked and Embedded Control Systems, published by Birkhauser in 2005. He is the editor of a series on control engineering for Birkhauser.

He is the current past President of the American Automatic Control Council, a Fellow of the IEEE, a Distinguished Member of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and has been President of the IEEE Control Systems Society. He is a recipient of the IEEE Third Millennium Medal. He and his collaborators received the Schroers Award for outstanding rotorcraft research in 1998 for their work on computer-aided design of rotorcraft control systems. He and another group of collaborators received the award for outstanding paper in the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control for their paper entitled “Discrete Time Point Processes in Urban Traffic Queue Estimation.”
