Excellence in Research Awards
Seven CoT faculty were recognized at the Excellence in Research Awards dinner last week, sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Richard Buckius, vice president for research, recognized fiscal year 2010 recipients of Purdue's Seeds for Success awards, which are given to investigators who garner grants of $1 million or more. Those surpassing that threshold for the first time receive a bronze acorn, symbolic of how small seeds can grow into great things.
CoT professors honored, the granting agency, and the funded project were:
- Eric Dietz (CIT), (one of several researchers), U.S. Department of Energy, Indiana Advanced Electric Vehicle Education and Training Consortium
- Tom Hacker (CIT), (one of several researchers), NEES Operations: FY 2010-FY 2014
- Qingyou Han (MET), The North American Die Casting Association, The HyperCAST Program
