Ravi Gorur

Biography

Ravi Gorur joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Arizona State University in 1987 as an assistant professor, became a full professor in 1995, director of undergraduate studies in 2006 and program chair of the electrical engineering program in 2010.

After nearly 30 years at Arizona State University, Emeritus Professor Gorur, a longtime advocate of the electric power and energy systems concentration of the electrical engineering program, and his family generously established an award for outstanding graduates in the field, ensuring a lasting impact for years to come. The first recipient of the Gorur Family Award was in 2016.

Gorur is currently a professor and department chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
