Tadeusz Wysocki has been named a "National Professor of Poland." The honor is a lifetime distinction that recognizes contributions to science and research. Wysocki is a professor of computer and electronics engineering. He directs the Wireless Research Laboratory at the Peter Kiewit Institute. He learned of the honor after Poland's president, Bronisław Komorowski, signed a decree in June.
