Cummins’ top engineer elected to prestigious tech academy

COLUMBUS, Ind.– Cummins vice president and chief technical officer John Wall has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the organization announced today.

Election to the Academy is one of the highest professional accolades that can be given to an engineer and recognizes an individual’s “outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education.” New members are elected each year by existing Academy members.

Specifically, the Academy has honored Wall for his “leadership and management of research, design, development and production of low-emission, fuel-efficient heavy-duty diesel engines.”

Wall, 58, joined Cummins in 1986 as an engineer in the Company’s Engine Business and has led Cummins’ worldwide technical business since 2000.

Wall has been instrumental in bringing to market Cummins’ emissions-busting diesel truck engines, including the latest 2010 NOx emissions standards, for both heavy-duty engines, and the three years earlier with the 6.7-liter engine for the Dodge Ram pickup truck in 2007.
