An Indonesian aeronautical engineer, Saryani “Yani” Asmayawati, was among the members of a team from Cranfield University who were recognized by British Queen Elizabeth II for work in aviation safety.

Yani is an alumni of the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB)’s aeronautics department, where she began her studies in 1994 and graduated in 2000.

The good news was spread by her cousin, Bambang Harimurti, the senior editor of Tempo news magazine, who is also an alumni of ITB. Bambang exchanged email regarding the news while celebrating with Yani’s academic mentor, Oetarjo Diran.

The email was published on a blog at ITB alumni senyum-itb.blogspot.com on Thursday, with Bambang identifying her as Asmayani Tjokronegoro and crediting her as being part of a team designing an aviation safety planning system now considered to be the best in the UK.
