Ruey-Beei Wu (吳瑞北) was born in Tainan, Taiwan, Republic of China, on October 27, 1957. He received the B.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1979 and 1985, respectively.

Ruey-Beei joined the faculty of this department in 1982 and was promoted as a Professor in 1990. He served as the Department Chair since August 2004 to July 2007. He has been with the Graduate Institute of Communications Engineering since its foundation in 1997. He was a Post Doctor at the IBM East Fishkill Facility, NY, from March 1986 to February 1987; a Visiting Researcher at the Electrical Engineering Department, University of California at Los Angeles, from August 1994 to July 1995, and a Visiting Professor at the Department of Information Technology, Ghent University, Belgium, from March to July, 2009. From May 1998 to April 2000, he was appointed Director of the National Center for High-performance Computing and was responsible for Taiwan's Next Generation Internet project anchored by the National Science Council. From November 2002 to July 2004, he served as Director of the Department of Planning & Evaluation, National Science Council, for the coordination of the national science & technology development. His research areas of interest include computational electromagnetics, transmission line and waveguide discontinuities, microwave and millimeter wave planar circuits, and interconnection modeling for computer packaging.

He is a member of the Phi Tau Phi Scholastic Society, the Chinese Institute of Engineers, the Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the International of Radio Science (URSI). He served as the Chair of IEEE Taipei Section in 2007-08. He served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering in 1996. He has been among the Editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques since 1992, and served as an Associate Editor in 2005-08. Since May 2009, he is invited to serve as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Advanced Packaging. He was elected and had served as the Chair of the IEEE Taipei Session during 2007 and 2008. Owing to his chairmanship, the IEEE Taipei Section was ed to receive the IEEE MGA Outstanding Large Section Award in 2009. He also received the IEEE Region 10 Outstanding Volunteer Award in 2009 in recognition of his dedications and contributions.

He was bestowed the Youth of Scientific Talent Award by National Culture Renaissance Association in 1975, the Distinguished Research Awards by National Science Council in 1990, '93, '95, and '97, the Outstanding Young Scientist Fellowship by URSI in 1990, the Outstanding Young Engineer Award by Chinese Institute of Engineers in 1992, and the Outstanding Electrical Engineering Professor Award by Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1999, the Outstanding Research Award from National Science Council in 2005, and the IEEE Fellow for his contributions to coplanar waveguide passive components in 2009.
