Curriculum Vitae


István Zoltán was born in Miskolc, Hungary, in 1946. He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary, in 1971, and the Candidate of Sciences (PhD) degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1987.

Currently, he is Associate Professor with the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. His research activity is focused on self-calibrating, self-correcting instruments, including instrument transformer calibration, artificial impedances and impedance analysis. He is co-author of the book Technology of Electrical Measurements (New York: Wiley, 1993). He is author of the book Measurement (Budapest: MK, 1997)

Dr. Zoltán was Hungarian delegate of IMEKO TC4 between 1985 and 2005. He has been Senior Member of the IEEE Hungary Section for four years and the Vice President of the Association of Hungarian Inventors for sixteen years. He won the �Jedlik Ányos Award� in 2004.
