“It feels great,” says Kotb, who was nominated for the ASME presidency one year ago. “It’s a long process and it’s sinking in now.”
“This is a remarkable career milestone for Madiha El Mehelmy Kotb,” says Christopher Trueman, interim dean, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science. “The fact that she is a Concordia graduate is a tremendous source of pride for us.”
Kotb says she intends to deepen the engineering body’s operations in key countries.
“ASME’s potential growth and future depends on its global activity,” says Kotb, who hopes to turn the society into “a truly global organization.”
With more than 132,000 members worldwide, ASME is virtually there.
