Southern University's Dr. Patrick F. Mensah named Fellow by American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Dr. Patrick F. Mensah, a professor in Southern University's Department of Mechanical Engineering, is now a "Fellow" in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
The ASME recently elected him to the prestigious position.
Mensah is one of only 3,205 Fellows out of the 117,504 ASME members. The Fellow grade is a distinction and must be nominated by their peers.
Dr. SU-Seng Pang, a professor in LSU's Department of Mechanical Engineering, nominated Mensah for the Fellow.
Mensah said he is, "humbled and honored to be recognized as a Fellow of ASME by my peers in the organization particularly since only about 2.7 percent of ASME's members worldwide are recognized as Fellows."
Being elevated to a Fellow recognizes the member's outstanding engineering achievements. ASME Fellows have had 10 or more years of active practice and at least 10 years of active corporate membership in ASME.
Mensah added that being recognized as a Fellow highlights "the outstanding engineering education and research activities at Southern University... giving needed exposure to the outside world and hopefully will enable us to attract excellent students into our programs."
The vision of the organization is "to be the essential resource for mechanical engineers and other technical professionals throughout the world for solutions that benefit humankind."
ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that fosters collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods.
