Professor John Lewandowski, ISSACS' Associate Director for Future Manufacturing, was recently awarded the Albert Easton White Distinguished Teacher Award by ASM International, a globally recognized materials information society. The award was presented during ASM's annual conference, which took place in New Orleans, LA last month.
The award recognizes Dr. Lewandowski, who serves as the Arthur P Armington Professor of Engineering II and Director of the Advanced Manufacturing and Mechanical Reliability Centre (AMMRC) at CWRU, for his "“outstanding contributions to teaching and research in materials science and engineering. Under his tutelage, his students have performed world class research in the mechanical behavior of intermetallics, metallic glasses, and high-performance structural materials."
According to the ASM International website, "[t]he award was established in 1960 in memory of an outstanding teacher and research engineer, who was a founding member and president of ASM in 1921. It recognizes unusually long and devoted service in teaching, as well as significant accomplishments in materials science and engineering, and an unusual ability to inspire and impart enthusiasm to students."1
