Bernie Rudd and friend

Mr. Brent Rudd, ME graduate student received the 2007 Martin Hirschorn IAC Prize from the Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE) Foundation to support his Ph.D. work on “Noise Reduction for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Patients.”

As part of the award, Mr. Rudd will receive $5000 to support his academic and scholarly work.  The award is given annually to students who are pursuing graduate work in acoustics and noise control, and its purpose is to recognize as well as encourage scholarly work in this field.  Professor Teik C. Lim, Head of Mechanical Engineering who is also Mr. Rudd’s academic advisor, said that the Martin Hirschorn award is very prestigious and highly competitive.

The fact that Mr. Rudd was selected for the award is a testimony of the quality of our students and research program.  Mr. Rudd also received his B.Sc and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from UC, and had worked for SDRC and MTS for a number of years before returning to UC for his doctoral study.
