ME Professor Emeritus Yoram Koren, the James J. Duderstadt Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Manufacturing and Paul G.
ME Professor Albert Shih has been chosen as a recipient of the 2018 SME Frederick W. Taylor Research Medal.
This award honors significant published research leading to a better understanding of materials, facilities, principles, operations and their application to improve manufacturing processes.
Additive manufacturing techniques have great potential to improve productivity and energy efficiency during part fabrication. The “bottom up” approach, creating parts layer by layer, “cuts out many steps of the traditional manufacturing process and makes it an appealing method,” said Jyotirmoy Mazumder, Robert H. Lurie Professor of Mechanical Engineering.
Lightweight composite materials in transportation reduce vehicle weight, which can have a large impact on improving fuel efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions.
Professor Anna Stefanopoulou has been appointed the William Clay Ford Professor of Manufacturing.
A new textbook, Analysis of Machining and Machine Tools, has been published based on the lecture material of ME 482 Machining Processes. ME Professor Albert Shih, the co-author of this book, has taught ME 482 and mentored subsequent instructors since 2005.
ME Assistant Professor Chinedum Okwudire has been selected to receive the 2016 Young Investigator Award from the International Symposium on Flexible Automation (ISFA).
Jyoti Mazumder, the Robert H. Lurie Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has won the M. Eugene Merchant Manufacturing Medal. Mazumder is also a professor of Materials Science and Engineering, as well as the Director of the Center for Laser-Aided Intelligent Manufacturing and the Director of NSF I/UCRC for Lasers and Plasmas for Advanced Manufacturing.
