Moskwa recognized for innovative engine test system
Mechancial Engineering Professor John Moskwa has won the Society for Automotive Engineers’ 2012 Edward N. Cole Award for Automotive Engineering Innovation. The award recognizes his work—as founder and director of the UW-Madison Powertrain Control Research Laboratory—in developing an improved transient test system for engine R&D using a single-cylinder research engine. He will receive the award at the society’s world congress in April. Read the SAE press release about Moskwa's award.
MIT’s Technology Review has called the Cole Award SAE’s most prestigious award for automotive engineering innovation, and the University of Michigan’s Michigan Engineer has noted that Moskwa is the first university professor to receive the award.
In its description of the award, SAE makes the significant distinction that it recognizes “the value of the work as an individual contribution, not upon the application of some development or invention already known.”
