​The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), is an organization that brings together the most important engineers worldwide in order to conduct research. 

Alvaro Talavera, Professor of the School of Engineering, has just been promoted to the position of Senior Member at the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a worldwide society of engineers.

“For my career, this is a great motivation and challenge because I am also being nominated to head the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society chapter in Peru, and international conferences may be planned with IEEE funding here in Peru. This may be in the hands of the Engineering School and, therefore, will be a good opportunity to internationalize the career,” expressed the professor.

Professor Talavera gets appointed as Senior Member of this important association after being an associate since 2010. This position is the highest awarded to any of its members.
