Christian Fauer, a senior in mechanical engineering, has received the Duane Hanson Scholarship presented by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air- Conditioning (ASHRAE).

The scholarship is named after the president of Gayner Engineers, a mechanical and electrical engineering consulting firm in San Francisco, California. It is one of seven $5,000 scholarships awarded by ASHRAE each year.

ASHRAE is a global society that directly impacts and interacts with the energy efficiency industry by envisioning a healthy and sustainable built environment through its advancements in heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and allied fields.

“Many thanks to the regional ASHRAE chapter of Birmingham for supporting Christian’s nomination,” Lorenzo Cremaschi, professor of mechanical engineering. “Christian is involved in this area of work, and he is a great component in the ASHRAE student branch chapter at Auburn.”

Fauer said he is interested in the fields of energy transfer, electric vehicles and pure design.

“It is an honor to have been chosen for this scholarship,” Fauer said. “I am grateful for the guidance of great professors like Dr. Cremaschi and my co-op internship opportunities that are made possible by Auburn University.”
