Presented at the
NPIC-HMIT Topical Meeting
or at the ANS Annual Meeting, in the years that NPIC-HMIT is not held
The H.M. Hashemian Mid-Career Award recognizes an individual for sustained outstanding contributions to nuclear instrumentation and control, human factors engineering, or human-machine interface over the first 15-25 years of his or her career. This award highlights the importance of the continued contributions of the upcoming generation of nuclear scientists and engineers in the future developments of nuclear instrumentation and controls and human factors research, development, and deployment.
The award consists of an engraved plaque and a monetary award of $1,000 cash award presented at the ANS Nuclear Plant Instrumentation and Controls – Human Machine Interface Technology (NPIC-HMIT) Topical Meeting or at the ANS Annual Meeting, in years that NPIC-HMIT is not held.
This award was established by the ANS Human Factors, Instrumentation & Control Division (HFICD) in 2018. It is named after Dr. H.M. Hashemian, President and CEO of Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation, recognized leader in I&C, and Fellow of ANS and IEEE. The award honors Dr. Hashemian who is an internationally recognized expert in nuclear instrumentation and controls and avid proponent of the future generation of nuclear scientists and engineers. This award is fully-funded by a $20,000 contribution by Dr. Hashemian.
The award is given to an individual who has made a sustained significant contribution during the first 15-25 years of his or her career in one or more of the fields of nuclear instrumentation and control, human factors engineering, or human-machine interface. This can be exemplified by either one significant achievement or a sustained effort in several engineering projects. Nominees must meet the following criteria:
