The Microwave Pioneer Award recognizes an individual or team (not exceeding three persons) for outstanding and pioneering technical contributions that advanced microwave theory and techniques. These must be described in an archival paper published at least 20 years prior to the year of the award.
The Microwave Application Award recognizes an individual or a team for an outstanding application of microwave theory and techniques, which has been reduced to practice nominally 10 years before the award.
The Outstanding Young Engineer Award recognizes a young MTT-S member who has distinguished him/herself through achievements. These may be technical (within the MTT-S Field of Interest) or involve exemplary service to the MTT-S, or a combination of both. The nominee must be no more than 38 years of age and an MTT member at time of the nomination.
The Distinguished Educator Award recognizes a distinguished educator (IEEE MTT-S member) in the field of microwave engineering and science who best exemplifies the special human qualities of Fred Rosenbaum, who considered teaching a high calling and demonstrated his dedication to the Society through tireless service.
The Microwave Prize is the oldest award granted by the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, dating back to 1955. The Microwave Prize recognizes the author(s) of a paper published in any official IEEE publication during the calendar year (but historically selected from the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques) that is judged the most significant in the field of interest of the MTT Society.
Publications which are the basis for awards are available via Xplore.
