Makowski received the Licence en Sciences Mathematiques from the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in 1975, the M.S. degree in Engineering-Systems Science from U.C.L.A. in 1976 and the Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Kentucky in 1981. In August 1981, he joined the faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Maryland at College Park, where he is presently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

He has held a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research since its establishment in 1985, and was its Associate Director for Research during 1995--1996. He is also a co--founder of and active participant in the Center for Satellite and Hybrid Communication Networks, a NASA center for the development and commercialization of space.

He has held visiting positions at the Technion (Israel), INRIA (France), IBM T.J. Watson Research Center (Hawthorne), AT&T Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill), AT&T Research Labs (Florham Park), the Institut Mittag-Leffler (The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences), and the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM).

Armand Makowski was a C.R.B. Graduate Fellow of the Belgian-American
Educational Foundation for the academic year 1975-76;
he is also a 1984 recipient of the NSF Presidential Young Investigator
Award. He became an IEEE Fellow in 2006.
