Every year, Women in Engineering (WIE) at Georgia Tech presents two awards to engineering faculty members who have had a special impact on students’ lives through their teaching excellence and by going the extra mile to encourage and support the students’ success. These awards are given on the belief that the learning environment is enhanced by professors who care, and that this increases student participation and retention.
The awards are distinctive because they come from the students themselves. Every year, female undergraduate engineering students are invited to nominate a faculty member who has had a positive impact on their lives.
The 2018 Faculty Award Winners are James Dahlman, Ph.D., from the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Engineering and Linda Wills, Ph.D., from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
