Federico Millo of Politecnico di Torino Named SAE International Fellow

WARRENDALE, Pa., May 26, 2016 - SAE International announces that Federico Millo was elected as a 2015-2016 SAE Fellow. Millo was one of 18 Fellow inductees recognized during ceremonies at the 2016 SAE World Congress, April 12-14 in Detroit, Michigan.

Millo is a full professor of automotive internal combustion engines at Politecnico di Torino, in Turin, Italy, where he also received his master’s degree in mechanical engineering in 1989. After completion of his master’s degree Millo joined the faculty at Politecnico di Torino as a researcher assistant, and he was appointed as associate professor in 1998, and promoted to full professor in 2016.

He was recognized as an SAE Fellow for contributions to a wide range of IC engine issues, in particular to the understanding of combustion, fuel injection, knock detection and control, cycle-to-cycle variability, emissions and energy management of hybrids. These contributions have found a direct application in the industry. He has led the establishment of the SAE Turin Section, and he is also widely recognized as an exemplary teacher.

Millo has published over 100 articles based off his research activity. His research is mainly focused on internal combustion engines, in particular on the analysis and diagnostics of the combustion process, on the use of alternative fuels, on pollutant emissions control in SI and diesel engines, on engine modelling and on the development of engine control strategies for conventional as well as for hybrid powertrains. 

Millo has been the recipient of numerous SAE International awards, including the SAE Forest R. McFarland Award in 2013, and two Excellence in Oral Presentation Awards for his presentations at the SAE World Congress in 2007 and in 2011. He has been an SAE International member since 1994 and has been serving as organizer and chairman of the "Engine Modeling" session since 2004 at the annual SAE World Congress. Since 2012 he has served as associate editor of the SAE International Journal, and in 2014 was nominated member-at-large of the SAE Engineering Meeting Board.

SAE Fellow is the highest grade of membership bestowed by SAE International. It recognizes outstanding engineering, scientific and leadership accomplishments by an individual that have resulted in meaningful advances in automotive, aerospace, and commercial vehicle technologies. The program, established in 1975, recognizes an average of 20 recipients worldwide for this honor each year.

SAE International is a global association committed to being the ultimate knowledge source for the engineering profession. By uniting over 128,000 engineers and technical experts, we drive knowledge and expertise across a broad spectrum of industries. We act on two priorities: encouraging a lifetime of learning for mobility engineering professionals and setting the standards for industry engineering.
