Blough Selected for SAE Education Award



Assistant Professor Jason Blough (MEEM) is among 10 mechanical engineering professors nationwide to have been selected to receive SAE International’s Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award. They will be presented their awards during the SAE 2007 World Congress in Detroit, April 16-19.

This award, established in 1953, recognizes outstanding engineering educators and offers them the opportunity to meet and exchange views with practicing engineers in their fields. The award honors the late Ralph R. Teetor, 1936 SAE International president, who believed that engineering educators are the most effective link between engineering students and their future careers.

Blough is the student advisor for the university's SAE Student Chapter and SAE Clean Snowmobile Enterprise Team, which competes in the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge. Previously, Blough worked at the Keweenaw Research Center and at General Motors' Milford Proving Grounds.

Blough has authored 73 publications, including 24 peer-reviewed journal articles and 49 conference papers. A member of SAE International, Blough was honored with the SAE Arch T. Colwell Merit Award in 1997. He is also a member of the Society for Experimental Mechanics.

Blough received his BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Tech and his doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He resides in Chassell.

The Teetor Award is funded by the SAE Foundation. In addition to supporting the awards, recognition and scholarship programs of SAE International, the SAE Foundation develops and funds programs and incentives that foster student interest in engineering, scientific and technical education.
