The Mechanical Engineering Department is soliciting nominations for this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award! The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes BS, MS, or PhD Alumni of the UCSB Mechanical Engineering Department who have made sustained exemplary contributions in their professional field or who have distinguished themselves for their dedicated service and leadership. We granted three awards in 2014 at the Department’s 50th anniversary celebration, and we will present one award this year, which will be given at Convocation in early October.
Previous winners include Mihailo Jovanovic for his outstanding research contributions to fluid dynamics, control and optimization, Kevin Ness for his work in microfluidics and PCR, Stephen Neushul for his development of X-Ray scanning systems and non-destructive testing, and Niklas Karlsson for his application of system engineering principles to online advertising.
To apply, simply submit a one-page biosketch and a short paragraph explaining your contributions to the field. For more information on the application and nomination process, see https://me.ucsb.edu/people/alumni. Submissions are due May 15, 2016.
