(JACKSON, Miss.) –  Jackson State University professor Mohammed Ali of the Department of Technology has been awarded the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) Faculty Excellence Award for 2011. ATMAE sets standards for academic program accreditation, personal certification, and professional development for educators and industry professionals involved in integrating technology, leadership and design.

“This rigorous peer-reviewed ATMAE award of high honor is only given to faculty at four-year engineering and technology programs in the country who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research and service in an academic career,” said John Colonias, JSU’s Department of Technology chair. “Dr. Ali deserves it.”

Ali has been serving on the ATMAE Certified Manufacturing Specialist Exam Commission.

“I am deeply honored to have been selected as the laureate to accept the ATMAE Faculty Excellence Award,” Ali said. “I am sincerely grateful for the recognition from ATMAE, which is the accreditation board of our department’s undergraduate and graduate programs.”

Ali received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology in Bangladesh, an M.B.A. in management of technology from the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand, an M.S. in computer science from Oklahoma City University and a Ph.D. in manufacturing of biomedical instruments from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He joined the JSU Department of Technology in 2007 as an assistant professor.

“I feel that achievement of this award came from my hard work and dedication, which could not be possible without my family’s sacrifice, collegiality from departmental colleagues, and JSU administration support,” Ali said.
