Kremer named American Society of Mechanical Engineers fellow

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Gül Kremer, Penn State professor of engineering design and industrial engineering, has been named a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

ASME cited Kremer for her research in engineering design and education, which "has had a profound impact on a generation of students and practitioners all over the world"; techniques to improve student design team experiences and bring research on engineering design to the classroom; contributions to three books on engineering design and numerous research papers; and leadership in the ASME Design Engineering Division and the Division of Undergraduate Education at the National Science Foundation, "defining the future direction of engineering education research."

Her research focuses on developing tools and methods for the early stages in the engineering design process, understanding human and social dynamics in design contexts and developing and investigating innovation/problem solving enabling methods.

A Penn State faculty member since 2000, Kremer previously held a faculty appointment at the Gebze Institute of Technology as well as visiting appointments at Sabanci University and Istanbul University.

During the 2010-11 academic year, she was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant.

Kremer received her bachelor's and master's degrees in industrial engineering from Yildiz Technical University; Istanbul, Turkey; a master of business administration from Istanbul University; and a doctorate in engineering management and systems engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla.
