SME Announces 2017 Class of Fellows

Starting in 1986, SME has honored key and notable contributors to the technical and educational progress and advancement of manufacturing by elevating them to the SME College of Fellows.

SME Fellows are professionals from industry, research and academia with more than 20 years of experience in manufacturing who are recognized by their peers and the manufacturing community for their impact on the manufacturing profession.

The 2017 honorees join this distinguished group who have made significant contributions to manufacturing, including aerospace engineering, manufacturing operations, material science, automotive manufacturing, and industrial analytics and system informatics.

From the earliest stages of research and innovation through production application and implementation, SME Fellows are at the creative forefront of manufacturing. In addition, through teaching, leadership and guidance, they have helped many students and young professionals in their own pursuits of advanced manufacturing degrees and careers in manufacturing. 

“It’s important to note the achievements and innovation marking the entire and extended careers of these professionals,” said 2017 SME President Sandra Bouckley, FSME. “We’re honored and proud to include them as SME Fellows in recognition of the decades of service and contribution offered by each of them.”

2017 Class of SME Fellows:


The 2017 SME Fellows will be recognized during SME’s Fall Awards & Installation Banquet November 4th in Chicago. As part of their recognition, the 2017 Fellows receive lifetime, dues-free membership and can utilize the credentials “FSME” (“Fellow of SME”) after their names.

Nominations for the 2018 Class of SME Fellows are due by December 1st. Nominees must be members of SME.
