Paper Earns Recognition in Engineering Education
“Addressing Third World Poverty in First-Year Engineering Capstone Projects: Initial Findings,” a paper by Dr. John K. Estell, chair of the Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science Department, Dr. Ken Reid, director of the Freshman Engineering Program, and Dr. Jed Marquart, interim chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department, has been awarded third place in competition sponsored by the First-Year Programs Division (FPD) of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
The top three papers are recognized in an FPD-sponsored session at the ASEE annual conference and published in the ASEE annual conference proceedings.
The award, a plaque and a cash award, was presented at the FPD business meeting during the 2010 ASEE Annual Conference held June 20-23, 2010, in Louisville, Ky. This is the first best paper award from ASEE for both Marquart and Reid; this is the fifth time that Estell has been recognized by ASEE with a best paper award.
