Congratulations to Joshua Houskamp, Ph.D. student in the
Department of Materials Science and Engineering, (advisor: Surya
Kalidindi) who has been chosen as a Koerner Famly Fellow for the
academic year 2004-2005. The fellowships specify that award
recipients must be studying toward a Ph.D. with a high likelihood
of seeking an academic career upon graduation. The Koerner family
established the fellowships in honor of their many years of
association with the University. Dr. Robert M. Koerner '56 '63, H.
L. Bowman Professor of Civil, Architectural and Environmental
Engineering, his wife Paula, and their children-George, Michael,
and Pauline-have accumulated four bachelor degrees, two master's
degrees, and a Ph.D. degree from Drexel, where collectively they
have been employed and educated for ninety years.
