Distinguished University Professor of Mechanical Engineering Ashwani Gupta is being awarded an honorary degree from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System. The Doctor of Energy and Engineering Science is being bestowed to Dr. Gupta in recognition of his contributions to the field of energy as a prolific researcher, teacher, and academic leader, and his involvement with UW–Milwaukee.

"This is great recognition from a well-recognized university to receive such an honor," stated Dr. Gupta, "I am honored and extremely pleased with the recognition they have given to me. Recognition of the work we have done at the University of Maryland and the impact this work has already provided on the industry worldwide on fuel savings and pollution reduction is quite significant."

Dr. Gupta has made significant contributions to the international community through his research on combustion, energy, fuels, and environmental pollution. His work on High Temperature Air Combustion (HiTAC), which reduces energy consumption and emissions while maintaining performance, is being used in industries worldwide in countries such as Japan, Germany, Poland, France, Sweden, United Kingdom, and China.

A faculty member in the Mechanical Engineering Department since 1983, Dr. Gupta was appointed as a Distinguished University Professor in 2008. He has received numerous honors and awards for his work on combustion such as AIAA's Energy Systems Award, and Propellants and Combustion Award, and ASME's George Westinghouse Gold Medal, James Harry Potter Gold Medal Award, James N. Landis Medal Award, Worcester Reed Warner Medal, The Holley Medal and the ASME-AIM Percy Nicholls Award. He has been frequently recognized with Best Paper Awards from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) over the past 25 years. Dr. Gupta served as the Director of Propulsion and Energy at AAIA and served on AIAA’s Board of Directors from 2007 to 2013.

Dr. Gupta will be presented the honorary degree on December 22, 2013 during UW-Milwaukee’s winter commencement ceremony where he will address the graduating class.
