Professors Assimina Pelegri and Stephen Tse elected “Associate Fellows” by the AIAA

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) awarded both Professor Assimina Pelegri and Professor Stephen Tse with the grade of Associate Fellow earlier this year, a position that requires an AIAA senior member with at least twelve years of experience in their field along with three recommendations from past AIAA Associate Fellows just to be considered for eligibility. AIAA, a professional society that deems itself to be the forerunner for innovation and excellence in modern American flight, annually celebrates the class of Associate Fellows at the AIAA Associate Fellows Dinner. This past May, the AIAA Associate Fellows Dinner was held in the Orlando Marriot World Center in Orlando, Florida on January 5, 2009.
