Wageeh Boles is Professor at the School Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Computational Intelligence and Signal Processing, Science and Engineering Faculty, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane. He was an Assistant Professor at Penn State University, USA, prior to joining QUT.
Wageeh held the position of Assistant Dean (Teaching and Learning), Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering, QUT, from 1999 to 2004. He has been successful in obtaining numerous competitive research and teaching development grants, and has more than 170 publications as journal and conference papers, book chapters, theses, and learning and teaching software packages.
Professor Boles has also published widely in the areas of biometric identification using iris and palm features, object recognition, robot vision, technology and education, work integrated learning, curriculum design, and the study and utilisation of learners’ cognitive styles.
Wageeh was awarded two Outstanding Teaching Assistant Medals, at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, in 1987-88. Since joining QUT, he has won several university and national awards, including the Engineers Australia and Australasian Association for Engineering Education (AaeE) Award for Excellence in Teaching and Leadership in Engineering Education. In 2007, he was President of the AaeE. In 2007 Wageeh received an Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) Associate Fellowship, and 2011, he was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship.
Wageeh is a member of IEEE, APRS, ALTF, and AaeE.
