Awards in Engineering for Faculty Members

Distinguished Performance Awards

Distinguished Performance Awards honour outstanding, well-rounded faculty members.  Winners are those with exceptional overall merit ratings, who have also made some significant contribution through their research, teaching, or service.  Each department offers awards for distinguished performance, with input from the dean and from the Academic Policy Committee.  

Teaching Excellence Awards

The Teaching Excellence Awards honour faculty members with a record of excellence in undergraduate teaching.  The committee also considers activities beyond the classroom, such as course development, student guidance, and student project supervision. The Award provides for the support of two Undergraduate Research Assistantships to assist recipients in their research work.  Each department makes one nomination for these awards, and three winners are chosen by the Chairs and Associate Deans committee.  

The Faculty Research Awards are a sister award to the Teaching Excellence Awards.

  • Application of non-conventional teaching techniques
  • Integration of experiential learning opportunities
  • Commitment and dedication to ensuring the academic success of their students
