Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Utschick





Prof. Wolfgang Utschick (Fellow, IEEE) received the Diploma and Doctoral degrees in electrical engineering with distinction, on machine learning from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, in 1993 and 1998, respectively. Prior to that, he completed several years of certified industrial training programs. Since 2002, he has been a Professor with TUM for Signal Processing and since 2011, he has been a TUM Asia faculty member in Singapore and a regular Guest Professor with Singapore Institute of Technology. Thereafter he became a core member of the newly founded Munich Data Science Institute in 2021. From 2017 to 2022, he served as the Dean of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at TUM. Wolfgang Utschick teaches courses on signal processing, stochastic processes, optimization theory, and machine learning in the field of wireless communications and various other application areas of signal processing. He also holds several patents in the field of Multiantenna Signal Processing and has authored as well as coauthored a large number of technical articles in international journals and conference proceedings. He has edited several books and is the Founder and the Editor of the Springer book series Foundations in Signal Processing, Communications and Networking. He has been awarded several best paper prizes and has been involved as Principal Investigator in several research projects funded by the German Research Fund (DFG) and coordinated a German DFG priority program on Communications Over Interference Limited Networks. He is a Member of the VDE, and a Member of the ITG Expert Group FA KT 1 for Information and System Theory of the German Information Technology Society. In addition, he currently chairs the German Signal Processing Section. He was also an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and was a Member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Committee on Signal Processing for Communications and Networking.
