Associate Professor Bongtae Han will be promoted to Professor of Mechanical Engineering on July 1, 2006.
Han?s expertise in photo-mechanics has underpinned significant contributions to the technical literature and leadership positions in the mechanics and electronic packaging communities. As noted by University of Maryland President C.D. Mote, Jr., this promotion is a tribute to Han?s contributions to the advancement of knowledge and the service he has provided to students, the University, and to the State of Maryland. Earlier this year Han was awarded the 2004 ASME Journal of Electronic Packaging Associate Editor of the Year Award.
The department is enriched by Bongtae?s success and looks forward to his leadership, contributions, and further recognition in the years ahead.
