Dr. Kolozsvary graduated from the Bolyai Farkas High School in his hometown (1954) and obtained a degree in mechanical engineering from the Polytechnic College in Bucharest (1959) with his doctorate on the effect of surface treatments on the wear resistance of machine parts (1971). He began his engineering career at Metalotehnica, a light industry machinery manufacturing company in Târgu Mureş (1959–65), then headed the research laboratory established there, and later headed the Târgu Mureş branch of the Light Industry Mechanical Engineering Research and Design Center (1976–1994). Since 1994 he has been the managing director of Plasmaterm Rt. He taught heat treatment as an invited lecturer at the College of Engineering of Târgu Mureş, and then as an associate professor at Sapientia. He has been participating in the congresses of the International Heat Treatment Association since 1986. After 1989, he politicized in the DAHR organization in Târgu Mureş. He compensates for the stress caused by his research and creative work by gardening in his small botanical garden in Szabed.

Ephraim has authored about 450 publications (patents, technical papers, book chapters, books), presented numerous keynote and invited talks worldwide, and received many professional awards, including 1996 Bell Laboratories Distinguished Member of Technical Staff (DMTS) Award (for developing effective methods for predicting the reliability of complex structures used in AT&T and Lucent Technologies products), and 2004 ASME Worcester Read Warner Medal (for outstanding contributions to the permanent literature of engineering and laying the foundation of a new discipline “Structural Analysis of Electronic Systems”). Ephraim is the third “Russian American”, after S. Timoshenko and I. Sikorsky, who received this prestigious award. Last year he received the 2019 IEEE Electronic Packaging Society (EPS) Field award for seminal contributions to mechanical reliability engineering and modeling of electronic and photonic packages and systems and Int. Microelectronic Packaging Society’s (IMAPS) Lifetime Achievement award for making exceptional, visible, and sustained impact on the microelectronics packaging industry and technology.
