Congratulations to Professor Alice Agogino for being selected from among the Berkeley Mechanical Engineering faculty as “Professor of the Year” by Berkeley’s Pi Tau Sigma, the Mechanical Engineering honors society. An excerpt about the award is given below:
“Once a year the UC Berkeley chapter of Pi Tau Sigma chooses an instructor to be named the Professor of the Year and presents him or her with the Excellence in Teaching Award. This acknowledgement has been given for decades to the instructor who has shown the most dedication and support for student learning. Simply lecturing in the classroom is not enough; those nominated are devoted to teaching and mentoring students so that they can be better academics, engineers, and members of society.
This year’s award is presented to Professor Alice M. Agogino, who has demonstrated time and again her commitment to high academic standards and improving the undergraduate experience for Mechanical Engineering students.”
