The professor is someone who has made a significant contribution and outstanding achievements in his career. For his contribution, the Professor was appointed as a New Fellow of ASM.

The ASM Fellowship consists of distinguished scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists that have made exceptional contributions in their fields. Individuals with merit, possessing high integrity demonstrating utmost decorum at all times with essential characteristics of an ambassador of ASM at the national and international level are nominated each year.
