Singh Among Top 2% of UMD Graduate Assistants
Department of Mechanical Engineering (ENME) Ph.D. student Ajay Singh, advised by Department of Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) assistant professor Michael Gollner, has received a 2015 Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award from the University of Maryland Graduate School.
According to the Graduate School’s web site, “Approximately 4,000 UMD graduate students also serve the campus as administrative, research, or teaching assistants. The Graduate School has established this new award to recognize and honor the outstanding contributions that Graduate Assistants provide to students, faculty, departments, administrative units, and the University as a whole. The award conveys the honor of being named among the top 2% of campus Graduate Assistants in a given year.”
Singh and his fellow awardees will be recognized at the 2015 Annual Fellowship and Award Celebration on May 7, 2015.
This year, Singh also won the Northrop Grumman Graduate Fellowship in Engineering Education, which is awarded to doctoral students committed to a teaching career in engineering education; and a Distinguished Paper Award at the 35th International Symposium on Combustion for his presentation of a new model that describes the relationship between a burning fuel’s temperature gradient and its mass burning rate.
