Paul Lin, Ph.D., an associate dean and professor at Cleveland State University, was recently named a new Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME). The honor, considered one of engineering's most esteemed, recognizes Lin for his significant engineering achievements and contributions to the profession.
A CSU faculty member since 1985, Lin becomes one of eight faculty members from the Fenn College of Engineering to achieve Fellow status within their respective professional societies.
“Dr. Lin is to be congratulated for this well-deserved, prestigious honor as he joins the ranks of our many respected professional society Fellows,” said Dr. Bahman Ghorashi, Dean of CSU’s Fenn College of Engineering. “His dedication to education, and research and development efforts, are a credit to the College and the University, as well as our students and surrounding communities.”
Lin lists the development of an intelligent system for NASA to automatically monitor the microgravity environment quality inside the International Space Station, and the development of an optical measurement technique for the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to quantify the dynamic deformation of aircraft tires as two of his most recognized accomplishments.
A regionally, nationally and internationally recognized researcher, Lin specializes in intelligent system monitoring and fault diagnosis, vehicle dynamics and control, optical inspection and engineering optimizations.
An ASME member since 1986, Lin received a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Tatung University in 1974, a master's in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida in 1981 and earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of Rhode Island in 1985.
