Horstemeyer to be Honored by Two National Organizations

January 22, 2013

Mark F. Horstemeyer, a chair professor in mechanical and computation engineering as well as the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) chair of computation solid mechanics and the center's chief technical officer, is being recognized as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Engineering Section at its annual meeting in February.

Horstemeyer will receive the same honor from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International at an April ceremony. These honors bring his total Fellow titles to four, an unprecedented accomplishment within the college. He earned Fellow status for ASM International in 2010 and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2006. The rank of Fellow is the highest grade of membership available in many professional organizations. It is awarded to members who have made a significant impact to their respective fields.

In addition to his role as a mechanical engineering professor, he also serves as an adjunct professor in the agricultural and biological engineering department. He is also the founder and director of two companies that relate to predictive technology. Horstemeyer has been named a Giles professor, the highest faculty honor at the university, and earned the Ralph E. Powe Research Award, the university's highest research award. He also earned the Teeter Award for Education from SAE International. As a researcher, he is widely known for his work in microstructure-property multiscale modeling, which was summarized in his recent book, "Integrated Computational Materials Engineering for Metals." His work includes more than $38 million in program development.
