The Engineering Ceramics Division invites nominations for the James I. Mueller and the Bridge Building Awards. The deadline for submitting nominations is July 15, 2012. The main criteria for selecting the Mueller award winner are long-term service to ECD and work in the area of engineering ceramics that has had significant industrial, national or academic impact. Award selection can be based on either criteria or a combination of both.
The Bridge Building award recognizes individuals outside of the US who have made outstanding contributions to engineering ceramics. The two main criteria to be used in selecting the recipient are the individual’s contribution to the field of engineering ceramics, including expansion of the knowledge base and their commercial use and, the individual’s contributions to the visibility of the field and international advocacy. The award can be based on either criteria or a combination of both.
Contact Dileep Singh, ECD Chair, if you have questions about either award.
