Massoud Kaviany, Zoran Filipi, and Steve Skerlos received College of Engineering awards during the April 5 Faculty Honors Dinner Dance held in recognition of the outstanding accomplishments of faculty throughout the College.

Massoud Kaviany received the Teaching Excellence Award. These awards are presented to individuals who exhibit outstanding or unusual teaching skills.

Recipients are distinguished by demonstrated excellence in research and associated scholarly activities over an extended period of their career.
