Rachel Vitali was co-advised by Prof. Noel Perkins (ME) and Prof. Cindy Finelli (EECS) on a dissertation that sought to advance inertial measurement unit (IMU) technology in two distinctly different areas of research: human biomechanics and engineering education.
PhD students Mohsen Taheri and Callan Luetkemeyer are recipients of the 2020 Ivor K. McIvor Award from the College of Engineering.
Angela Violi is a professor of mechanical engineering and chemical engineering in the College of Engineering, and a professor of biophysics in LSA. Described as a stellar interdisciplinary researcher, she has created new courses on energy processes and introduced powerful computation methods that position students to be leaders in the international engineering community.
The NSF CAREER awards are the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
Assistant Professor Daniel Cooper is the recipient of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award. This award recognizes manufacturing engineers who have made exceptional contributions and accomplishments in the manufacturing industry. Professor Cooper leads the Resourceful Manufacturing and Design Lab (ReMaDe) at U-M Mechanical Engineering.
Each academic year the College of Engineering sets out to recognize outstanding faculty for their work and dedication. They are nominated and supported by other colleagues. A total of 19 awards were given and below are the six ME faculty members/team who were honored:
ARC (Automotive Research Center) Team - Ted Kennedy Family Faculty Team Excellence Award
Assistant Professor, Yue Fan is the recipient of the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program Award. The CAREER Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards.
U-M ME, PhD student, Callan Luetkemeyer is a winner of the Savio L-Y. Woo Young Researcher Award – Biomechanical Research for ISLT-XVIII. She will be presenting her abstract at the symposium this February.
Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, Galip Ulsoy and his wife Susan Glowski have provided an endowment gift to establish the E. & M. Ulsoy Citation Leader Award Fund. This honor is awarded annually to the U-M ME faculty member with the largest number of citations to his/her research work in the Scopus Database that year.
The International Academy for Production Engineering (CRIP), is the world-leading organization in manufacturing research. Fellows are internationally recognized scientists elected to be CIRP members for life. The academy has restricted membership to 15 per country based on excellence in research.
