Prof. Mai, Yiu Wing was awarded two major medals and prizes:

(1) The UK Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining’s 2016 AA Griffith Medal

2016 AA Griffith Medal and Prize by the UK Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) for outstanding contributions to fracture mechanics and advanced engineering materials. The Griffith Medal is given in recognition of distinguished work that has made or is making a notable contribution to any branch of materials science.

(2) The Engineers Australia Mechanical College’s 2016 AGM Michel Medal

2016 AGM Michell Medal by the Mechanical College, Engineers Australia for outstanding service to mechanical engineering through “long-standing eminence relating to the science and practice of Mechanical Engineering, with a good balance of ingenuity, a vast range of theoretical knowledge and applications”. The Award perpetuates the memory of Anthony George Maldon Michell FRS (1870-1959), an outstanding Australian Mechanical Engineer who was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1934 and was awarded the Kernot Medal in 1938 and the James Watt Medal in 1943.

Prof. C C Chan honored by WFEO, HAE and RAE

The World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) has awarded its 2013 Medal of Engineering Excellence to Prof. C C Chan for his contributions to the advancement of theory, practice, commercialization of electric vehicles and creative engineering education. It cited his “constructive psyche” shaping his engineering career, which, at every prospect, is driven to uncover improvements. This is supported by a mind of exceptional clarity, speed, and wisdom of judgment, as well as accompanied by creativity and a seemingly inexhaustible energy and quiet determination. At the World Engineers Summit on 13 September in Singapore last year, Prof. C C Chan was presented the Medal which will be presented biennially hereafter, to spot the practice, theory and public contributions of engineering.

Subsequently, Prof. C. C. Chan was elected Honorary Member of the Hungarian Academy of Engineering on 18 September 2013.

In a recent press release of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the U.K. Prof. C C Chan again made the headlines. Dubbed the “Father of electric vehicles”, he has been awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering‘s highest individual award, the Prince Philip Medal, for his contribution to engineering. He will be receiving the Medal on 2 July 2014 at the Royal Opera House in London.
