Honoring Professor CK Chu with the Columbia Impact Award

Come one come all!

We are excited to announce that at the Asian Columbia Alumni Association’s 20th Anniversary Gala our community will honor Professor John Chia-Kun Chu with the Columbia Impact Award.

A pioneer in the fields of computational fluid dynamics and computational magnetohydrodynamics, Dr. C.K. Chu is also the architect and founder of Columbia’s Applied Mathematics Program. The active chair of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science’s  Applied Mathematics program, Professor Chu has undoubtedly made a timeless contribution to Columbia University and its Engineering School.


Currently, Dr.Chu is working in collaboration with the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies on computational studies of global ocean circulation. In the past, he has received such noted distinctions as the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, the Columbia University Great Teacher Award, and the Columbia University Honorary Doctor of Science Degree. He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Chiao-Tung University and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from NYU’s Courant Institute.


More information about Dr.Chu and his illustrious career may be found here.


We hope you will join us in celebrating Dr. Chu’s inspirational career and contribution to the Asian Columbia Community on April 30th in Low Library when he is presented with the Columbia Impact Award.  There could certainly not be a more deserving recipient of this honor.

See you there!
