DEARBORN, MI - Five manufacturing professionals have been elected to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME) College of Fellows.
Over their extended careers, each of these individuals contributed to the field of manufacturing in ways that extend beyond their own circle of work. This year’s class includes: Jian Cao, Northwestern University; Narendra B. Dahotre, University of North Texas; Herbert Dobbs, Torvec Board of Directors; I.S. Jawahir, University of Kentucky; and Günter Warnecke, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern.
“Being named an SME Fellow is limited to a very few exceptional members,” said Marvin DeVries, Chair of the SME International Awards & Recognition Committee. “These individuals must stand apart from their peers and have demonstrated substantial impact on the manufacturing profession throughout their careers.”
The SME College of Fellows was created to honor those members who have made outstanding contributions to the social, technological and educational aspects of the manufacturing profession. This honor can only be earned through 20 or more years of dedication and service to manufacturing engineering.
The 2010 class joins 263 other SME members who have been elected as fellows since the program’s inception in 1986 and represents various segments of the manufacturing community.
