MEMS Faculty Member Elected to Canadian Academy of Engineering Fellows
Scott Mao, the John A. Swanson Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, was recently elected Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE). Mao is one of 50 highly accomplished individuals selected from a competitive nomination and selection process this year and was chosen in recognition of his outstanding contributions in fracture and mechanical behavior of materials, leading to significant progress and breakthroughs in the damage evaluation of engineering structures. He was nominated by Dr. David S. Wilkinson, Distinguished University Professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
An induction dinner for new fellows is typically held at the AGM Technical Symposium in June. This will be a virtual event this year with plans to postpone the in-person event to 2021.
