ISE Team Awarded the Joseph Whitworth Prize by IMechE

A research team led by Dr. Benny Cheung of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) was awarded the Joseph Whitworth Prize (2010) by the Manufacturing Industrial Division of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), UK, in June 2011. The award was given in recognition of their research work in ultra-precision machining, as presented in the paper, Analysis of surface generation in the ultra-precision polishing of freeform surfaces, published in Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part B, Journal of Engineering Manufacture. The Joseph Whitworth Prize is a prestigious award presented annually by the Manufacturing Industrial Division of IMechE to recognize achievements of engineers and scientists in their fields of expertise.
