Mechanical Engineering professor Raj Manglik, Ph.D., received the University of Cincinnati Award for Faculty Excellence.

Sponsored by UC’s Office of the Provost and the Office of Research, the Award for Faculty Excellence honors faculty who have done an outstanding job in teaching, research or service.

Peers nominated Manglik for balancing his prolific research output with his work advising graduate students.

In 28 years at UC, Manglik has generated more than $9.5 million in research grants, published more than 100 journal papers and wrote the textbook Principles of Heat Transfer, which is used in many engineering schools.

Currently, Manglik is the principle investigator on a $3.4 million grant from the United States Department of Energy that could eliminate water consumption from the air-cooling systems of power plants.

As an advisor, Manglik has mentored 36 master’s students and 12 Ph.D. candidates at UC. He has also served as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Enhanced Transfer, chair of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) heat transfer division executive committee and member on many university committees.

Previously, Manglik received the James Harry Potter Gold Medal from ASME in 2018, ASME Hear Transfer Memorial Award in 2016 and the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s Distinguished Research Award several times.
