Event Picks Promising Early-Career Engineering Faculty from Across the Country

Dr. Raymond Tu, assistant professor of chemical engineering in the Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York, is one of 53 young researchers and educators nationwide invited to attend the National Academy of Engineering’s 2010 Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium.  The event, which will bring together innovative, early-career engineering professors from more than 40 institutions, will be held December 13 – 16 in Irvine, Calif.

Professor Tu, who was voted the Grove School’s teacher of the year in 2009, and the other attendees selected to participate were nominated by fellow engineers or deans and picked from a highly competitive pool of applicants.  The symposium will provide them with an atmosphere to share ideas and opinions on the best practices in education and bring back new ideas and practices to their home institutions.

“I am excited to be surrounded by like-minded educators and to gather different opinions on the future of education within the field of engineering,” Professor Tu said.  “I want my students to leave CCNY confident in their abilities to answer open-ended engineering questions and design real-world systems.”

"The Frontiers of Engineering Education program creates a unique venue for engineering faculty members to share and explore interesting and effective innovations in teaching and learning,” said National Academy of Engineering President Charles M. Vest.  “We intend for (the event) to become a major force in identifying, recognizing and promulgating advances and innovations in order to build a strong intellectual infrastructure and commitment to 21st-century engineering education.”
