UAH is pleased to announce that Dr. Phillip A. Farrington, professor in the College of Engineering, has been selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering's sixth Frontiers of Engineering Education symposium. Dr. Farrington is among just 77 invitees to the symposium, all of whom were nominated to and selected from a highly competitive pool of their peers.
"The Frontiers of Engineering Education program brings together top university faculty to explore preparing engineers for the world's great engineering challenges," said Dr. Dan Mote, President of the National Academy of Engineering. "It is a no-holds-barred look at the front edge of engineering education."
The symposium will be held Oct. 26-29 in Irvine, Calif. Attendees, who were selected based on their "innovative educational approaches," will share ideas, learn from research and best practice in education, and receive the tools needed to bring about improvement at their home institution.
