The Motorola Excellence in Teaching Award

This award was established in 2002 to recognize outstanding teaching in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The recipient is the faculty member receiving the highest number of votes from senior ECE students and who has not been a recipient within the last four years.

Recipients receive $2500 cash, a personal plaque, and their name placed on a permanent plaque that is placed on display in the main hallway of the EE building.

The award is presented at the Spring ECE faculty meeting each year.
