ulsoy,Professor Galip Ulsoy Professor Galip Ulsoy ( ) will be inducted to the National Academy of Engineering in October 2006 for his pioneer research contributions to dynamics and control of axially moving elastic materials and their implementation in automotive and manufacturing systems.

Ulsoy is the William Clay Ford Professor of Manufacturing. He has served as the founding Director of the Program in Manufacturing and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He served as the Technical Editor of the ASME Journal of Dynamic Systems Measurement and Control, (JDSMC) and is a member of the editorial board of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing and several other international journals. He has also served as Editor of the IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Corresponding Member of CIRP. He is the Vice-President, and President Elect of the American Automatic Control Council (AACC), which is the national member organization representing the USA in the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC). He has served as the Chair of the Executive Committee of the Dynamic Systems and Control Division of ASME, and as the General Chair, Program Chair and Publications Chair for the American Control Conference.

In addition, Ulsoy has received several professional honors and awards including the 1979 Wood Award from the Forest Products Research Society, a Society of Manufacturing Engineers' 1986 Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, the AACC 1994 O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award, and the Southwest Mechanics Lectureship (1995), the 2001 ASME JDSMC Best paper Award, and the ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division Leadership (2000) and Outstanding Investigator (2004) Awards. During 2003-2005 he served as the Director of the Civil and Mechanical Systems Division at the National Science Foundation (NSF). He served as the founding Deputy Director (1996-2002) of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Reconfigurable Machining Systems, and has served as the Director (1992-94) and Associate Director (1990-92) of the NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center for Dimensional Measurement and Control in Manufacturing.

Ulsoy has developed several new courses in the automatic control, automotive and manufacturing areas at the University of Michigan and is the co-author, with Warren R. DeVries, of the textbook Microcomputer Applications in Manufacturing (Wiley, New York, 1989). He has also published over 200 refereed technical articles in journals, conferences, and books.
