Five Young Aerospace Engineering Educators Honored with SAE International Ralph R. Teetor Award
WARRENDALE, Pa., Dec. 15, 2011 - Five aerospace engineering professionals from academia were honored with the SAE International Ralph R. Teetor Award during the Awards Luncheon at the 2011 SAE AeroTech Congress and Exhibition.
Reflecting the firm belief that engineering educators are the most effective link between engineering students and their future careers, the SAE International Ralph R. Teetor Educational Fund's major program is focused on younger engineering educators. Its objective is to provide an engineering atmosphere in which these teachers can meet and exchange views with practicing engineers. The current decade places greater expectations upon the colleges and universities of the world to educate individuals who must successfully meet the challenges that face society. The purpose of the Teetor Award is to recognize and honor those younger educators who are successfully preparing engineers for this task.
Recipients of the award included:
Andrew Gouldstone, Assistant Professor, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Northeastern University;
Christina L. Carmen, Lecturer, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Alabama in Huntsville;
Gregory M. Odegard, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, Michigan Technological University;
Matthew A. Oehlschlaeger, Associate Professor, Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; and
Tobias Rossmann, Assistant Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Rutgers University.
