Engineering students honored outstanding educators on April 5. Organized by the Engineering Council, the awards celebrated professors and graduate teaching assistants for mastery of academic disciplines, clarity in instruction, and dedication to their students’ growth and well-being.

“Though there are many faculty and graduate students doing amazing research and making unbelievable breakthroughs in the school of engineering, today’s honorees are special also for their work outside the laboratory,” Council President Caroline Zhao ’25 said in her introduction to the lunchtime ceremony in the Friend Center convocation room.

“They have mastered the task, arguably the most difficult of all in academia, of teaching the next generation.”

The teaching awards recognized instruction in courses held during the spring semester of 2022-23 and fall semester of 2023-24. Recipients are selected by the votes of engineering undergraduate and graduate students. First granted in 1988, the engineering teaching awards are the oldest student-run teaching honors at Princeton.
