UM educators chosen for Boeing Award

Boeing Co. has chosen a team of educators from the Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland at College Park to receive the 1996 Boeing Outstanding Educator Award, which carries a $50,000 prize.

The university and team members won the award over 30 other schools. Of the $50,000, $5,000 will go to the winning team and $20,000 will be an unrestricted grant for the team's programs. The remaining $25,000 will go to the engineering school as a grant to support educational improvement.

The Boeing Outstanding Educator Award recognizes engineering educators who have made exceptional contributions to improving undergraduate engineering education. The contributions, often adopted by other schools, help turn undergraduates into well-grounded, well-rounded engineers.

The University of Maryland team was recognized for combining the traditional undergraduate engineering technical core studies with significant student exposure to product design, testing and manufacturing, teaming issues and business concerns associated with product development.
