2013 Class of ASM Fellows

2013 Class of ASM Fellows

Congratulations to our 2013 Class of Fellows

In 1969, ASM established the Fellow of the Society honor to provide recognition to members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering and to develop a broadly based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the society. Following are the members recognized by their colleagues for 2013. Additional Fellows may be elected to this distinguished body in subsequent years. The solicited guidance, which the Fellows will provide, will enhance the capability of ASM as a technical community of materials science and engineering in the years ahead. Awards will be presented at ASM's annual Awards Dinner, Tuesday, October 29th in Montreal, Canada, during Materials Science & Technology 2013 (MS&T'13).
