ECE Distinguished TAs Honored at University Ceremony

Eight ECE graduate students were named Distinguished Teaching Assistant (TA) Awardees by the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) for the 2005-2006 academic year. This year’s Distinguished TAs are: Navik Agrawal, Hirsh Goldberg, Rania Mameesh, Bhuvan Middha, Vikramjit Mitra, Vishal Patel, Matthew Stamm, and Zachary Wilkes.

The award winners were selected based on nominations from faculty and students, as well as outstanding teaching evaluations and supporting comments.

”They represent our most exemplary and dedicated graduate TAs in our department,” said Director of Graduate Academic & Student Affairs Dr. Dan Balón. “They serve as a model for excellence in teaching and dedication to supporting the instruction of our students.“

This year's Distinguished TAs were honored at a ceremony held Friday, May 12, 2006 in the Riggs Alumni Center (see photos from the ceremony). The awards were sponsored by CTE, the Dean for Undergraduate Studies, and the Dean of the Graduate School.

Last year's (2004-2005) awardees from the ECE department included: Michael Black, Mohamed Fahmi, Kevin Galloway, Alfred Haas, Hung-Quoc Lai, Vishwa Reddy, and Sanjay Varma.
