In late August Professor Ian Grosse of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department received the Distinguished Service Award from the Computers and Information in Engineering (CIE) Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Grosse earned the award “in recognition and appreciation of leadership and outstanding service to the ASME Computers and Information in Engineering Division.” Grosse was elected an ASME Fellow in 2012.

The Distinguished Service Award was presented to Grosse at the 2018 ASME IDETC/CIE conferences, which were held in Quebec City from August 26 to 29. The award was determined by the CIE Executive Committee. According to its website, ASME’s CIE division focuses on the use of computers, computing methods, software, and information management in engineering which impact critical engineering issues of representation, product design and development, exchange, management, and integration of information throughout the entire engineering product and process life cycle.

Grosse researches semantic information modeling and the application of semantic web technology to support engineering design, analysis, and decision making, advanced additive manufacturing, and biomechanics. He is affiliated with The NSF Center for e-Design and the Realization of Engineered Products and Systems.

Professor Grosse earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. (September 2018)
