Two Thermo-Calc Software employees, Prof. Qing Chen and Paul Mason, were inducted into the ASM Fellows Class of 2022. The fellows were announced on ASM’s website in May this year and the ceremony was held earlier this week during the IMAT conference in New Orleans, USA. The honor is bestowed upon technical and professional leaders for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering.
About the ASM Fellow of the Society
The Fellow of the Society was established in 1969 by ASM not only as a way to honor the inductees, but also to establish a group of advisors to ASM’s board of trustees. Inductees offer technical and professional expertise to the board, which, according to ASM’s website, “enhances the society’s standing as a leading organization for materials and provides a unique resource to serve the worldwide community of materials scientists and engineers in the years ahead.” Twenty-two new fellows were inducted this year, including two from Thermo-Calc Software.
