He joined Pratt & Whitney in 1999 and currently leads product integrity and process improvements across Systems Analysis & Aerodynamics disciplines including Operability, Performance, Modeling, Systems Analysis and Validation, and Controls and Diagnostic Systems.

"Ebad is a fantastic engineer and a valuable asset to Pratt & Whitney," said Tom Prete, vice president, Engineering. "Pratt & Whitney is home to the world's most innovative engineers, and honors like this show that the world recognizes their extraordinary contributions."

Jahangir received a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in aerospace engineering and holds master's degrees from both the University of Michigan and MIT in aerospace engineering and systems design and management.

The AIAA is the world's preeminent aerospace technical society, with more than 35,000 individual members and 90 corporate members.
