According to ASTM, recognition is for members who have demonstrated the potential to become industry and ASTM committee leaders. Worldwide, the company offers more than 12,000 materials testing standards and best practices in hundreds of industries.

Manogharan is a member of ASTM Committee F42 for Additive Manufacturing Technologies, which develops standards for 3D printing technologies.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized by the world’s leading materials testing standards organization, which has been the flagship organization for over 120 years,” he said. “This is an excellent opportunity both to learn best practices in standards development and to benefit from my background in additive manufacturing.”

As an EP, Manogharan will complete training courses, attend workshops and participate in technical committees in order to prepare him for a future leadership position in society. He is one of nine members selected for this honor in 2021.

“DR. Manogharan’s accomplishments are very impressive to a faculty member early in their career,” said Karen A. Thole, distinguished professor and director of mechanical engineering. “His recognitions are all well-deserved.”
