Recognizing excellence in teaching
Whatever form teaching excellence may take, we are committed to developing, supporting, and recognizing exceptional teaching.
There are a variety of internal and external teaching awards in place to recognize excellence in engineering education. In order to be considered, a faculty member, instructor, teaching assistant, or instructional team must first be nominated. Nominations may be put forward by both students and colleagues.
