Professor Cetin Cetinkaya Elected ASME Fellow

Potsdam, NY | Posted on November 18th, 2011

The ASME Board of Governors confers the fellow grade of membership on worthy candidates to recognize their outstanding engineering achievements. There are only 3,187 fellows out of 119,209 ASME members.

Cetinkaya is a researcher and educator in the field of vibration, elastic wave propagation, thermoelasticity, MEMS-based sensors, particle adhesion and removal, and symbolic computing. His recent research found key applications in characterization of pharmaceutical materials and manufacturing monitoring, and adhesion/removal of nano/micro-particles in semiconductor industry.

His research group has, for the first time, experimentally demonstrated the existence of rolling resistance moment in micro-particles based on a non-contact method he introduced. It also developed the first acoustic non-contact/non-destructive drug tablet quality monitoring and characterization and real-time compaction monitoring systems.

Cetinkaya's pioneering work in acoustic monitoring of pharmaceutics tablets, toner particle adhesion and nanoparticle removal has been supported by major agencies and corporations, such as Intel, Pfizer, Wyeth Pharmaceutics, Xerox, and Praxair.

He has initiated education efforts, like the two new courses he has developed: Nano/Micro-Systems Engineering and Elastic Waves in Solids. He has also obtained funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for education projects under programs like "Nanotechnology Undergrad Education (NUE))" and "Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)." He has also received an education grant from Lemelson-MIT Foundation for a hands-on engineering design project.

Cetinkaya came to Clarkson's Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering in 1997 and has also had a courtesy appointment as a professor of electrical engineering since 2006. He is the director of Clarkson's Photo-Acoustic Research Laboratory, co-director of the Nanomechanics/Nanomaterials Laboratory, and a member of the steering committee of the Center for Sustainable Energy Systems.

Prior to Clarkson, he served on Wolfram Research Inc.‘s research and development staff, and as an adjunct assistant professor and adjunct lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

He has both a Ph.D. and a master of science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from Istanbul Technical University.

Cetinkaya's research program at Clarkson University has received funding and grants from many agencies and major corporations, including the U.S. Army Research Office, the NSF, the New York State Foundation for Science, Technology and Innovation, the Consortium for the Advancement of Manufacturing in Pharmaceuticals, International SEMATECH, and NYSERDA, and companies such as Pfizer, Xerox, Intel, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, and Praxair Surface Technologies/MRC.

Cetinkaya has written or co-written over 60 refereed journal articles and 35 papers in conference proceedings as well as several magazine articles. He also gave several invited talks at universities and corporations in the U.S. and overseas. He received the Best Paper Award of the editorial board of the Journal of Nanoengineering and Nanosystems.

He is the inventor or co-inventor on five granted or pending patents and on several provisional patents. He has given presentations at many conferences, symposiums, and invited seminars and workshops,

Cetinkaya serves as an executive committee member of ASME's Systems and Design Group, is the past-chair of the MEMS Division of ASME and is a member of the Technology Roadmap Team for semiconductor surface preparation at SEMATECH International. He is a member of the committee on administration and finance of the ASME Technical Communities Operating Board, an editorial advisory board member of the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology, guest editor of the International Journal of Pharmaceutics Special Issue on Manufacturing Performance of Solid Dosage Forms, and guest editor of the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology Special Issue on Nano/Micro-Scale Adhesion.

Cetinkaya has also served on several grant proposal review papers for the National Science Foundation since 1998.

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 120,000 members in over 150 countries worldwide.

Twenty-two percent of Clarkson's Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering faculty are fellows of their respective professional societies.
