Dr. Yassin Hassan from the Department of Nuclear Engineering and the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University was recently named a University Distinguished Professor.

The designation is the university’s highest faculty honor — it identifies faculty members who are preeminent in their fields and have made at least one landmark contribution to their discipline. University Distinguished Professors retain their current rank and title as well as the additional distinction.

Hassan joined the nuclear engineering department at Texas A&M as an associate professor in 1986 and has since served as the associate, interim and full-time department head (from 2013-18). He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Nuclear Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He was the recipient of the 2020 Distinguished Alumni Award from the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois. His awards include the 2008 American Nuclear Society Seaborg Medal, the 2003 George Westinghouse Gold Medal, the 2004 Thermal Hydraulics Technical Achievement Award, the 2003 Arthur Holly Compton Award of the American Nuclear Society and the 2017 James N. Landis Medal of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Most recently, he received a Regents Professor Award from The Texas A&M University System.
