Faculty of Engineering dean named ASME Fellow

OSHAWA, Ont. - Dr. Marc Rosen, founding dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is one of the best in the profession.

On Monday, January 31, Dr. Rosen will be recognized by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) when he receives the prestigious award of Fellow during a special presentation on the UOIT campus.

"The Fellow Grade is the highest elected grade of membership within ASME, the attainment of which recognizes exceptional engineering achievements and contributions to the engineering profession," according to the ASME website. Dr. Rosen certainly meets the criteria of an individual who has demonstrated significant engineering achievements and other successes.

"Receiving this distinction from ASME International is quite humbling. I sincerely thank the many colleagues and students with whom I have worked over the years, as I would not be receiving this recognition without their contributions and efforts," said Dr. Rosen. "I look forward to continuing at UOIT the activities that led to this honour, as our university provides, what I feel is, a great foundation for excellence in teaching, research and professional service."

A reception will be held in the foyer outside Room UB2080 of the Business and IT building at 3:30 p.m. which will honour Dr. Rosen for his present work as founding dean, as well as his previous accomplishments. After presenting the award, ASME member Thomas Wendt will deliver a seminar for engineering students entitled, "First Year on the Job."
