Associate Dean honoured with prestigious lectureship awardMarch 9, 2018

The Faculty of Engineering’s Associate Dean, Academic, Ken Coley, has been awarded the 2018 John F. Elliott Lectureship Award.

Established in 1990 by the Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), the award honours the late Professor John Elliott of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a leading educator in the field of chemical process metallurgy.

The award’s objective is to bring awareness to opportunities in chemical process metallurgy and to inspire students to pursue careers in this field. 

As part of the award, Coley, who is also the ArcelorMittal Dofasco Chair in Ferrous Metallurgy, will present a lecture at several universities throughout the year on a topic related to chemical process metallurgy.

“Professor Elliott was a giant in the field of chemical process metallurgy," says the Materials Science and Engineering professor. “I am over the moon to have been awarded the Elliott Lectureship. I can think of few greater honours than being chosen by my peers to introduce the excitement of our field to the next generation.”

Coley was nominated for the lectureship by Materials Science Assistant Professor, Neslihan Dogan, and was endorsed further by several other international colleagues. The nomination was approved by the AIST Awards and Recognition Program Committee and ratified by the AIST Board of Directors.

On May 8, Coley will accept the award at AISTech 2018 — the Iron & Steel Technology Conference and Exposition, the largest annual technological forum for the global steel industry.
