The Department is proud that Prof. Fu Mingwang has been elected to the 2022 SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) College of Fellows. This year, only eight individuals were elected to the 2022 SME College of Fellows. Prof. Fu has been the senior member of SME since 2000 and he was the only individual outside of the United States elected to the 2022 SME College of Fellows.
Since 1986, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) College of Fellows has honored those members who have made outstanding contributions to the social, technological and educational aspects of the manufacturing profession. This is a highly prestigious honor that can only be earned through years (20 or more) of dedication and service.
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers is the world’s leading professional society advancing manufacturing knowledge and influencing more than half a million manufacturing practitioners annually. SME's communities connect manufacturers to their peers by discipline, industry, or geographies – enabling powerful collaboration, strengthening networks, fostering research, surfacing experts, and enhancing knowledge. Election as an SME Fellow is limited to a select group of individuals each year, making it one of the most prestigious honors bestowed by SME.
