American Bureau of Shipping endows Chair in Ocean Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley

Professor Ronald W. Yeung has received the inaugural appointment to this chair for a five-year term, effective 1 July 2012 through 30 June 2017.

ABS has had a longstanding commitment to education. “We believe that encouraging students in engineering is crucial to the future of the industry,” says ABS President and CEO Christopher J. Wiernicki. “We are convinced the caliber of people in leadership roles at universities like UC Berkeley is one of the keys to ensuring these institutions continue to produce the quality engineers who will develop technologies that will determine the future of the industry.”

Professor Yeung’s involvement at UC Berkeley is evidence that he takes leadership roles like this one seriously. For more than two decades, he has served as the faculty advisor of the university’s student section (Cal-SNAME) for the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME).

Technical papers of eight of his advisees have won the national SNAME Graduate Paper Honor Prize. Three other papers by his students have won American Society of Mechanical Engineers International Awards as well.

A dedicated educator, Yeung has mentored more than 100 graduate students and researchers, many of whom are actively involved in the marine field worldwide.
