D. Gary Harlow, professor and chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics at Lehigh University’s P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science, has been named a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

The distinction, one of the most prestigious in the field, recognizes outstanding achievements made by longstanding members of the professional society. Of the 130,000 ASME members worldwide, some 3,000 have received the honor. 

“Professor Harlow’s remarkable accomplishments in materials reliability research and development make him deserving of this recognition,” says Donald Rockwell, the Paul B. Reinhold Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics at the Rossin College, who shepherded Harlow’s nomination. “Add to that his commitment to educating and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students—including his efforts in supporting varsity student-athletes to meet the demands of Lehigh’s rigorous engineering program—and his contributions overwhelmingly merit the distinction.”
