CSUN is one of the top engineering schools in the region. So it just makes sense that the Engineer Council — whose mission statement includes “Advanc(ing) the art and science of engineering for the general welfare of humankind” — would look to CSUN’s engineering professors to bestow awards upon during the council’s annual “National Engineers Week Honors & Awards Banquet.” It’s safe to say that the quality and work of the CSUN staff engineered plenty of accolades.

In all, seven faculty members from CSUN’s College of Engineering and Computer Science walked away winners. The night ended with the dean of the college, S. K. Ramesh, picking up the John J. Guarrera Engineering Educator of the Year Award from the organization.

“It is deeply humbling to be recognized by one’s peers, and I am very fortunate to be working with such a wonderful team,” Ramesh said. “I am especially delighted to see several of our newest faculty members receive recognition for their outstanding work.”

The strength of its faculty has been an important factor in the College’s rapid growth. In 2010, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) recognized CSUN’s undergraduate engineering programs as the fastest growing in the nation.
