Back in November 9th, 2018 the SAWE San Diego Chapter teamed up with the San Diego State University’s College of Engineering Student council to host an outreach event. Students and attendees were treated to pizza and refreshments while chapter director Doug Fisher gave a very engaging presentation and discussed what is mass properties engineering and SAWE’s important role in the industry. Following the presentation an open forum discussion took place and fellow members shared their career experiences as a mass properties engineers. Thank you to SDSU CESC President Nik Marquez for hosting and Doug Fisher for a great presentation!
This is the third in a series of articles from the SAWE Awards Committee.
The criteria for the Fellow and Honorary Fellow awards can be found in the attached files. These are presented in tandem because the criteria are similar. Note the differences in wording, viz., that a candidate for Fellow has “achieved distinction in Mass Properties Engineering, or has materially contributed to the advancement of the SAWE”; whereas, an Honorary Fellow has “achieved eminence in Mass Properties Engineering, or has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the SAWE”.
A subtle distinction, but here are some additional guidelines: a candidate for Fellow has participated at the International level on committees or has led training sessions, or has been a key player in supporting the local chapter for an International Conference. Consistent and outstanding performance at the SAWE chapter level may also qualify, as would a distinct achievement in the field of Mass Properties Engineering.
Honorary Fellows are typically chosen from the field of Fellows and usually require a longer length of service at the International level in a key leadership position.
