Prof Z. Q. Zhu Promoted to the Highest Professor Band at the University of Sheffield

Edited byzx Date:2014-01-14 03:03

Prof Ziqiang Zhu, a recruited expert by China’s 1000 Talent Plan (short term), has been promoted to the highest professor band (Band III) at the University of Sheffield due to his remarkable contributions in area of Electrical Engineering.

As one of the original 'red brick' universities, and member of the prestigious Russell Group of research intensive universities, the University of Sheffield is renowned worldwide for its predominant position in both teaching and research. Professors in the University are banded according to the level at which they are working and their contribution to the University (Band I, Band II, Band III). Band III is only for top 5% of the total professors at the University of Sheffield. It is reserved for a small number of professors who bring great prestige to the University through their sustained record of academic achievement at the highest international level. This may take the form of leadership of world-leading research, election to the most prestigious learned societies, a leading role in high-impact interdisciplinary collaborations with a broad range of academic, industrial or governmental partners, or a position of unequivocal international authority. The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, where Prof Zhu serves now as professor, leads its counterparts in teaching and research in U.K. Prof Zhu was the first and the only one promoted to the highest professor band in EEE department, and 1 of 8 in the Faculty of Engineering who have won the honor.

Prof Zhu has long been concerned about and engaged in development of EE College and Zhejiang University as well. He received the B.Eng. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from Zhejiang University in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Sheffield, Sheffield, U.K., in 1991. Since 1988, he has been with the University of Sheffield, where since 2000 he has been a Professor at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. He is currently Fellow of IEEE, Fellow of IET, Head of the Electrical Machines and Drives Research Group (one of the largest research group in the world, and well known internationally for its pioneering research and development on permanent magnet machines and controls), Director of Sheffield Siemens Wind Power Research Centre, and Director of Welling Shanghai Research Centre (Midea Group). His major research interests include design and control of permanent magnet brushless machines and drives, for applications ranging from automotive to renewable energy, on which he has published ~600 papers including accepted papers and 166 IEEE Trans/IET proc. papers.
