Alfred University will present a doctor of science degree, honoris causa, to Joel Moskowitz, founder, president and chief executive officer of Ceradyne, Inc., at its annual commencement ceremony May 14. "People may not know the name 'Joel Moskowitz' or the name of his company, but certainly everyone has heard how ceramic body armor has saved hundreds of lives of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Charles M. Edmondson, Ph.D., president of Alfred. "One of the most common questions we are asked is, 'What does a ceramic engineer do?' People like Joel Moskowitz and the company he founded demonstrate very well just what ceramic engineers can do: They make products that save peoples' lives."
