Dr. Alaa Elwany, associate professor of the Wm Michael Barnes ’64 Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University, was chosen to receive the 2021 John L. Imhoff Global Excellence Award for Industrial Engineering Education from the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
This award is given to a recipient recognized for their accomplishments and contributions in industrial engineering education, their demonstrated excellence in global cooperation and understanding through leadership, as well as other avenues.
“I am extremely grateful to ASEE and the selection committee for recognizing me with this award. I would also like to thank my current and former students and my family for their support and for driving my motivation and passion about global excellence in industrial engineering,” Elwany said. “Being selected for a national award named after a true visionary like Professor Imhoff is an incredible honor.”
Elwany received his doctoral degree in industrial and systems engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and his master’s and bachelor’s degrees in production engineering from Alexandria University.
His research interests include modeling, analysis, optimization and control of advanced manufacturing processes with emphasis on metal additive manufacturing, more commonly known as metal 3D printing.
His contributions in engineering research and education have been recognized through multiple teaching awards such as the Texas A&M Center for Teaching Excellence and young investigator research awards. These include being named an outstanding young manufacturing engineer from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and receiving the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early CAREER Development Program award.
