Each year the American Automatic Control Council (AACC) presents an individual or team the Control Engineering Practice Award for significant contribution to the advancement of control practice. This year that honor went to Anna Stefanopoulou, a William Clay Ford Professor of Manufacturing, mechanical engineering professor, and the Director of the U-M Energy Institute.
Stefanopoulou's innovation in powertrain control technology has made her a stand out for this award. It has been recognized with multiple awards, published in several books, and she currently holds 21 U.S. patents. AACC cited her for, "Excellent sustained and impactful contributions to the modeling, analysis, and control of advanced vehicle powertrain systems."
