Awtar receives 2012 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award


awtarAssistant Professor Shorya Awtar has been chosen to receive the 2012 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to SAE’s engineering education initiatives.

Reflecting the firm belief of its donor that engineering educators are the most effective link between engineering students and their future careers, the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Fund’s major program is focused on younger engineering educators. Its objective is to provide an engineering atmosphere in which these teachers can meet and exchange views with practicing engineers.

The current decade places greater expectations upon the colleges and universities of the world to educate individuals who must successfully meet the challenges that face society. The purpose of the Teetor Award is to recognize and honor those younger educators who are successfully preparing engineers for this task.

Established in 1963, the award is administered by the Teetor Educational Award Committee and consists of a framed certificate, a trip to a major SAE meeting, and two years of SAE membership. The award will be presented to Awtar at either the Awards Ceremony during the SAE World Congress or at a major SAE aerospace meeting.
