Prof. Tsai Voted SAMPE Fellow

Aero/Astro Emeritus Research Professor Stephen Tsai has been voted Fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE). This is one of the highest honors the Society can bestow on its members, awarded previously to only 119 scientists and engineers of the over 4,000 members around the world. He is one of six new Fellows who will be inducted in 2010.

Prof. Tsai's research interest is in the development of design methodology and fast protyping of composite materials and structures. His current project is online composites design tutorials, which provide intensive, live training by experts from around the world.

Prof. Tsai is also a member of the National Academy of Engineering. He has written two introductory texts on composite materials and two books on composites design
