Jan Maciejowski is a Professor of Control Engineering in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, England. He is Head of the Information Engineering Division, and a member of the Control Group. He is also the President and a Fellow of Pembroke College, Cambridge. He was a member of the IETs Policy Panel for Innovation and Emerging Technologies until 2011.

He was the President of the European Union Control Association from 2003 to 2005, and was President of the Institute of Measurement and Control for 2002. He is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), and the Institute of Measurement and Control (InstMC). He was a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Control Systems Society from 2001 to 2007.

Jan Maciejowski graduated from Sussex University in 1971 with a B.Sc degree in Automatic Control, and from Cambridge University in 1978 with a Ph.D degree in Control Engineering. From 1971 to 1974 he was a Systems Engineer with Marconi Space and Defence Systems Ltd, working mostly on attitude control of spacecraft and high-altitude balloon platforms.
