Two Elizabethtown College Engineering & Physics professors won competitive awards at the annual American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference.
Assistant Professor of Engineering & Physics Mark Brinton received a Faculty Travel Award from the Biomedical Engineering Division of ASEE. As a result of this award, Brinton attended the annual meeting for ASEE over the summer, where he learned from and networked with leaders in engineering education from across the United States and Canada.
“Attending the conference has connected me to a community of support as I seek to improve my engineering education research and present my findings at future professional meetings,” said Brinton.
Assistant Professor of Engineering & Physics Jean Batista Abreu received the 2021 Ferdinand P. Beer and E. Russel Johnston, Jr. Outstanding New Mechanics Educator Award. This award is given annually by the Mechanics Division of the American Society for Engineering Education to recognize early-career faculty who demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching with evidence of exceptional contributions to engineering mechanics education.
Batista Abreu was presented the award at the virtual Mechanics Division Awards event, which was held as part of the 2021 ASEE Virtual Conference. In addition to this year’s virtual recognition, an in-person recognition will take place at the 2022 ASEE Annual Conference, during the Mechanics Division Banquet.
These latest accolades continue an impressive tradition of Etown Engineering faculty being recognized at the annual education conference as three additional Blue Jay professors won competitive awards at the ASEE in recent years.
