Dr. Jihad Qaddour received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering Telecommunication in 1990 from the Wichita State University. From 1993-1998, he was an assistant professor at Mesa State College, Colorado. Dr. Qaddour received his tenured and associated professor in 1998 from Mesa State College, Colorado. He Served at Mesa State as a graduate Coordinator from 1996-1998. Dr. Qaddour joints the industry in late 1998 to gain more hands on experiences. From 1998 to 1999, he was with Sprint PCS, Switch and Radio department, as a Principal Engineer. From 1999-2001, Dr Qaddour was a manger of the Switch and Radio department, where he managed more than 10 engineers. From 2001-2002, Dr. Qaddour moved to Broadband Wireless department as a Lead engineer to select the new broadband technology for Sprint Wireless. From 2002 to present, Dr. Qaddour is teaching in School of Information Technology at Illinois State University, where he received his tenured in 2005 and associate professor in 2008.
My main research interests are in the areas of wireless Systems, communication theory and emerging technologies, with an emphasis on 4G/5G, wireless security, and multi-antenna (MIMO) systems. The promise communication technology holds in the future is enormous. Developing high data rate wireless technology with robust and seamless service and high throughput wire line technology are the main motivating factors behind both theoretical and practical research in communications today. As wireless is a relatively new technology, many basic theoretical issues concerning them are still unresolved. Research Interest and experiences: • Wireless Communications for fourth Generation (4G) and Fifth Generation (5G) technologies. • Capacity and coverage design and analysis. • Sensor design and networks. • Wireless and mobile security. • Modeling and simulation studies for wireless systems. SDN and NFV networks and security
