Department of Mechanical Engineering Senior Research Scientist Dr. Michael Osterman has been recognized with a 2019-2020 Provost’s Excellence Award for his outstanding contributions and accomplishments to research.

Osterman is the director of the Center for Advanced Lifecycle Engineering’s (CALCE) Electronic Products and System Consortium at the University of Maryland. He heads the development of simulation assisted reliability assessment software for CALCE and simulation approaches for estimating time to failure of electronic hardware under test and field conditions. Dr. Osterman served as a subject matter expert on phase I and II of the Lead-Free Manhattan Project sponsored by Office of Naval Research in conjunction with the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technical Panel (JDMTP). In addition, he has consulted with automotive, medical, defense, and industrial electronic companies on the transition to lead-free materials.

The Provost's Excellence Awards for Professional Track Faculty were established in fall 2015 to recognize the contributions of professional track faculty on campus. Winners receive a letter of recognition from the Provost and a $1,000 award in recognition of consistently excellent contributions in one of the three core areas of academic activity: research, education, and service.

This is the second consecutive year that a Provost’s Excellence Award for Research has been awarded to a faculty member in Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Vikrant Aute received the award for the 2017-2018 year.
