David Holger has been named to the prestigious rank of Fellow by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Holger is a professor of aerospace engineering, associate provost for academic programs, and dean of the graduate college at Iowa State.
The award will be in recognition of Holger’s significant and innovative research in aeroacoustics, particularly with respect to the development of innovative noise control systems and outstanding leadership in engineering education and accreditation.
Presentation of the new Fellows will take place at the AIAA Aerospace Spotlight Awards Gala, Wednesday, May 9, 2012, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, in Washington, D.C.
AIAA President Dr. Brian D. Dailey stated: “Being named a Fellow of AIAA is among the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an aerospace professional, and represents recognition from colleagues and peers for great contributions to our field and technical community.”
Each year, only 1 in 1,000 members of the AIAA is honored with the rank of fellow. “It is both a great honor and a testament to Iowa State University to have one of our faculty named to this esteemed rank,” said Richard Wlezien, chair of aerospace engineering.
