The U-M Academic Women’s Caucus gives out annual awards including the Sarah Goddard Power Award. This award is named after the late U-M Regent Sarah Goddard Power and recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the betterment of women through their leadership, scholarship, or other ways in their professional life.
The University Record published a story about the awards stating this:
Tilbury is a professor of mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering and computer science. Her research interests lie broadly in the area of control systems, including applications to robotics and manufacturing systems.
“Throughout her career, from her leadership of the Society of Women Engineers student chapter as an undergraduate at the University of Minnesota, through her leadership of the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Directorate today, Dr. Tilbury has been an advocate and supporter of women in engineering,” said Kira Barton, associate professor of mechanical engineering.
We congratulate Professor Tilbury on all her work, leadership, and inspiration that many women in engineering will follow for years to come!
