City Tech Chair Of Electrical Engineering Explores Space Technologies In Book’s Second Edition

We may not realize the extent to which our everyday lives are governed by satellites and other innovative space technologies, but City Tech chair of Electrical Engineering, Dr. Mohammad Razani, would like to change that. In the recently published second edition of his book Commercial Space Technologies and Applications: Communication, Remote Sensing, GPS, and Meteorological Satellites, Razani explores space technologies and their various applications.

Focusing on man-made satellites, this new edition not only discusses the space technologies that benefit our daily lives, it also explores the ways in which these technologies have improved over the years, as well as their impact on our generation and generations to come. Moreover, it includes extensive study questions and exercises after each chapter for those interested in testing their knowledge or wishing to use it as a textbook in their institutions.

Razani notes, “Outer space is a challenging environment that provides enormous opportunities and benefits to mankind and should be used wisely and for peaceful purposes only.”

Dr. Razani has extensive experience in various fields of technologies spanning from satellite communications to microwave remote sensing and information technology. He received his B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. degrees from Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas. At City Tech, Razani is a full professor and chair of the Electrical and Telecommunications Engineering Technology Department.
