Aksay Elected to National Academy of Engineering

February 17, 2010

Ilhan Aksay, Professor of Chemical Engineering and associated faculty in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), in a press release issued today. Aksay was cited “for advances in ceramic processing methods, biologically inspired materials processing, and field-induced layering of colloidal crystals.” Election to the National Academy of Engineering (established 1964) is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature,” and to the “pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
