Adjunct Professor J.B. Joshi Elected International Member of National Academy of Engineering
Congratulations go to our Adjunct Professor J.B. Joshi for being elected as an International Member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE)!
Election to the National Academy of Engineering 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." Election of new NAE members is the culmination of a yearlong process. The ballot is set in December and the final vote for membership occurs during January.
Prof. Joshi was elected for contributions in rational design of multiphase chemical process equipment and leadership in shaping the Indian chemical industry.
