Carnegie Mellon University’s Sumit Goenka Receives Shri Ram Arora Award at TMS2013

Sumit Goenka, Graduate Student at Carnegie Mellon University, will be recognized by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) with the Shri Ram Arora Award. Goenka will receive the award at the TMS 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, on March 5.

Said Goenka: “Shri Ram Arora recognizes young researchers in the field of materials science and engineering. Receiving this prestigious award and attending TMS2013 provides me a platform to interact with researchers and people working in similar areas. This is a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge and collaborate with faculties having similar interests. As a TMS student member, I not only get to apply for various scholarships and awards, but also expose me to the industry-institute interaction.

Presented by the TMS Foundation through a grant from the Dr. Om Arora family, as a means of perpetuating their father’s, Shri Ram Arora, quest for continual learning and academic challenge, this award recognizes, encourages, and supports the quest for knowledge within the materials science and engineering community. Winners receive an engraved award and cash honorarium.

Goenka will receive the award at the 2013 TMS-AIME Honors & Awards Banquet, to be held March 5, 2013 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, as part of the TMS 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibition.

Now in its 142nd year, the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition attracts approximately 4,000 materials scientists and engineers working in industry, academia, and government from more than 68 countries. TMS2013 is scheduled for March 3-7, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas. For more information, visit
