    Mtech Director and Mechanical Engineering Professor Peter Sandborn was elected as an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Fellow, a distinction awarded to ASME members who have made significant engineering achievements.

    Sandborn was recognized for his contributions in the life-cycle cost modeling for systems field that “have been particularly instrumental in refocusing significant portions of the systems community to include a view of the system life cycle within their design and strategic planning activities,” according to ASME’s fellow citation. “It is nice to be recognized by my peers for the contributions I have made,” Sandborn said. “I hope that I can continue to contribute to the mechanical engineering community in the future.” 

    Sandborn joined ASME 12 years ago when he became a mechanical engineering professor in the department. Over 3,000 ASME members have attained the membership grade of fellow. To learn more, visit the ASME Fellows website.
