Felder *66 Receives Inaugural ASEE Lifetime Achievement Award in Engineering Education
Richard M. Felder *66, Hoechst Celanese Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University, received the first Lifetime Achievement Award in Engineering Education from the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) last week at ASEE’s 2012 Annual Conference in San Antonio, TX. The award recognizes “sustained contributions to education in the fields of engineering and/or engineering technology throughout [the awardee’s] career”. Felder’s many contributions include a diversity of teaching resources, and coauthoring Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes (now in its Third Edition), which has been use by over three-quarters of U.S. chemical engineering departments for their introductory course, and is currently used at Princeton as the text for CBE 245. Felder was also recognized in 2010 by the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES) with their Global Award for Excellence in Engineering Education.
