Alexander Louis ("Lou") London (August 31, 1913 – March 19, 2008) was an American mechanical engineer and professor of mechanical engineering at Stanford University.
Adrian Bejan is an American professor who has made contributions to modern thermodynamics and developed what he calls the constructal law.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is a professional organization for chemical engineers.
Amir Faghri is an American professor and leader in the engineering profession as an educator, scientist, and administrator.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a professional association that, in its own words, "promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe" via "continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach." ASME is thus an engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, a provider of training and education, and a nonprofit organization.
