King Ankobea-Ansah and Professor Carrie Hall work on an engine.

Professor Carrie Hall and King Ankobea-Ansah discuss engine installation for testing the alternative fuel, Dimethyl ether (DME) blended with renewable propane fuel, in a compression ignition (CI) engine via a novel high pressure fuel injection system.

Congratulations to Ph.D. candidate King Ankobea-Ansah (MSc. MAE ‘22), who is the 2023/24 recipient of the Yanmar/SAE Scholarship. Yanmar America Corporation is the world’s largest manufacturer of non-vehicle-use diesel engines. Given the urgency of limited fuel supplies and environmental concerns over continued use of fossil fuel, Yanmar established this scholarship to help promote their motto: “to conserve energy is to serve mankind.”

Along with the scholarship, King receives a free one-year SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Student Membership. SAE provides opportunities to develop important skills including leadership, project management, communication, public speaking, time management, and many more.

The MMAE department is very proud of Mr. Ankobea-Ansah for this achievement.
