Alumni, Frederick M. Carlson


Frederick M. Carlson (B.S.E., M.S., Mechanical Engineering ’63, ’64; Ph.D., Electrical Engineering ’75), Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, was named a Professor Emeritus at Clarkson University, his academic home of 38 years. Dr. Carlson is credited with educating “several generations of undergraduates, developing important courses that introduced students to finite element methodology and new analytical software and engineering applications.” Dr. Carlson established a highly regarded program in the field of heat transfer in crystal growth, and was one of the reasons that Clarkson University, through the Center for Advanced Materials Processing, was selected by NASA to head up the NASA/Crystal Growth Consortium.
