M.S. Kalsi (MSME '70, Ph.D. ME '75) is an engineering alumni who recently expanded his already extraordinary support of the Cullen College when he established an endowed professorship last fall in the mechanical engineering department. On March 31, the Cullen College community celebrated his enormous impact with a dinner held in his honor on campus.

The dinner was hosted by the department of Mechanical Engineering at the Estess Alumni library in the Honors College Commons, and was attended by faculty, alumni and even professors emeriti who taught Kalsi during his time as a student at UH.

Kalsi owns Kalsi Engineering, a high technology firm that provides consulting engineering services in areas of research and development, design, analysis and testing of mechanical equipment and structures. His support of the Cullen College dates back several years, and his recent endowed professorship is the latest in a long line of gifts he has provided the college. The Dr. Manmohan Singh Kalsi and Dr. Marie-Luise Schubert Kalsi Endowed Professorship totals $500,000 and honors the memory of Professor Gabriel Andrews Fazekas.
