TSI'S FINGERSON HONORED WITH NATIONAL ACADEMY OF ENGINEERING MEMBERSHIP

 ST. PAUL, Minn., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Leroy M. Fingerson, chairman and chief executive officer of St. Paul-based TSI Incorporated (NASDAQ: TSII), has been elected to membership in the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Fingerson was selected based on his work in flow instrumentation, including research, development, design and manufacturing.
 Election to the academy is among the highest professional distinctions accorded an engineer. "Academy membership honors those who have made important contributions to engineering theory and practice, including significant contributions to the literature of engineering theory and practice," and those who have demonstrated "unusual accomplishment in new and developing fields of technology," according to Robert M. White, NAE president.
 Fingerson is among 73 engineers newly elected to membership in the academy. Eight also have been elected as foreign associates. This brings total U.S. membership to 1,684 and the number of foreign associates to 142.
 Fingerson co-founded TSI and has been chief executive officer since 1961. He has a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the Institute of Technology at the University of Minnesota.
 The NAE is a private, nongovernmental group founded in 1964 as a sister organization to the National Academy of Sciences, under a congressional charter granted in 1863 by Abraham Lincoln. The organization's main mission is to provide independent advice to the federal government on questions of engineering and technology. The academy also serves as a national forum on a full range of engineering issues.
 TSI Incorporated is a $40 million industry leader in the design and manufacture of fluid flow, particle measurement and meteorological instrumentation used in environmental, industrial and research applications. The company's common stock is traded on the national over-the-counter market under the NASDAQ symbol TSII.
