Keystone Program Featured in ASEE Prism Magazine

The Clark School's Keystone Academy of Distinguished Professors was featured in the February 2008 edition of the American Society for Engineering Education's (ASEE) Prism magazine.

The Keystone program was cited in a piece titled "Staying on Track," which examines four engineering schools' efforts to increase undergraduate student retention rates.

The Keystone program, initiated within the Clark School two years ago, focuses on improving the educational experience for undergraduates early in their academic careers by arranging for some of the best faculty to teach introductory engineering courses. The program is highly selective, and fosters exemplary undergraduate teaching skills and a commitment to excellence in fundamental engineering courses.

William Fourney, associate dean of the Clark School and professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, is quoted frequently throughout the article.

Included in the feature are photos of students working on hovercraft projects in a course taught by Dr. Bruce Jacob, a Keystone professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE), and director of the computer engineering program.
