The School of Engineering takes justifiable pride in the high
quality of its instruction at the undergraduate as well as the
graduate level. Our faculty members delight in conveying the excitement
of academic discovery both at the introductory level, where our
students master concepts and critical thinking, and at the more
advanced level, where students discover the rewards and rigors of
research, whether in archives, in the laboratory, or in the field.
Outstanding teachers in the School are recognized by the Henry
& Madeleine Fischer Faculty Award which is voted by graduating
seniors to faculty for outstanding teaching.
Recognizing, however, that all teachers can improve their skills
and learn new approaches and techniques at any stage of their career,
the School and the University offer various resources such as workshops
and seminars for faculty members who wish to invigorate their teaching.
