ASHRAE Awards First Federal Fellowship

The American Society of Heating, Refrigrating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers has chosen an associate professor from Purdue University for its first Washington, D.C., Federal fellowship. “I am eager to learn about how energy policies and research strategies are formulated at the federal level,” said Bill Hutzel, P.E., who works in Purdue’s Department of Mechanical Engsineering Technology. “I hope to play a small role in advocating for sustainable design practices in buildings. I am proud to be representing ASHRAE because it is the professional society ideally suited for leadership on this important topic.”

The one-year fellowship lets Hutzel work in a technical advisory role for the federal government. At Purdue, he teaches undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, controls, fluid mechanics, and HVAC. He is co-faculty advisor for the ASHRAE Purdue Student Branch.

The fellowship educates participants on federal policy-making and increases the visibility and involvement of scientists and engineers in public policy. The fellowship runs from September through August and typically begins after a two-week orientation sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. ASHRAE members interested in applying for the 2008 Fellowship can contact Doug Read, ASHRAE's program director of government affairs, at dread@ashrae.org.
