Ray J. Amlung named by Cummins Inc. as Vice President and General Manager - Fuel Systems
On October 30, 2006, Cummins Inc. named Ray J. Amlung Vice President and General Manager - Fuel Systems. Mr. Amlung is a Louisville native and graduate of St. Xavier High School. He earned B.Sc. and M.Eng. degrees from the mechanical engineering department in 1980 and 1982, respectively. Best known for their rugged, dependable, and efficient diesel engines, Cummins is a global leader in the design, manufacture, distribution and servicing of a broad range of engines for automotive, off-road, and stationary applications. Fuel systems are a critical technology for compression-ignition engines, and Mr. Amlung's leadership has been instrumental in helping Cummins maintain compliance with increasingly strict emissions regulations.
In addition to his exemplary career as in engineering and technology management, Mr. Amlung has played a critical role in helping our department enhance its academic programs. From 1996-2002 he served as a member of the ME External Board of Advisors, reviewing course content, curriculum organization, and facilities, while making recommendations to help keep every aspect of our programs current with the needs of industry. Since then, he has been named a member of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering Industrial Board of Advisors, where his input has an even broader impact.
Mechanical engineering students, staff, faculty, and alumni are proud of the role our department played in Mr. Amlung's career achievements to date, and appreciative of his willingness to share his knowledge for the benefit of new generations of Speed School engineers.
