Professor Kin P. Moy, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering Technology, has been selected by the Motor Vehicle Council of Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) to receive the 2011 Technical Standards Board Outstanding Contribution Award in recognition of his outstanding service within the technical committee activities of SAE.
Professor Moy was the only engineer from an academic institution to receive this award in 2011 and was officially recognized in the 2011 SAE World Congress during the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 12th at Cobo Hall in Detroit, Michigan.
The purpose of the Outstanding Contribution Award is to recognize individuals for outstanding service in the technical committee activities of SAE International including:
- Outstandingly valuable contributions to the work of SAE technical committees.
- Unusual leadership in the activities of an SAE technical committee.
- Significant contributions as a representative of SAE to the accomplishments of technical committees of other organizations or of government agencies.
- Outstanding contributions to SAE technical committee work in the form of research, test methods and procedures, and/or development of standards.
Due to active participation into the EMC standards activities, Professor Moy has been awarded numerous research grants from the Hong Kong Productivity Council, Automotive Research & Testing Center of Taiwan and the U.S. Department of Transportation via YSU’s Center for Transportation & Material Engineering (CTME). Much of the technical knowledge gained from these activities has been incorporated into his classes to enrich students’ ability to understand real world global engineering issues.
This award enhances Youngstown State University’s Global image as an Urban Research University.
