Mechanical Engineering Faculty Awards

In 2015, the mechanical engineering department established a new award program to motivate and to recognize mechanical engineering faculty members with a superior record of research and teaching in the department. The original awards included the Junior Faculty Outstanding Research Award, the Senior Faculty Outstanding Research Award, and the Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award.  The Outstanding Service and Technology & Innovation Awards were added in later years to recognize the work faculty complete in those areas.
