Dr. Agnes d’Entremont has been awarded the Outstanding New Mechanical Engineering Educator Award by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The organization’s Mechanical Engineering division selects the winner who is “an individual early in their mechanical engineering education career who has demonstrated the potential, effort and persistence to make sustained and exceptional contributions to mechanical engineering education.” The award was presented at their annual conference, held virtually on June 23. Founded in 1893, the ASEE is a large U.S.-based organization, which has 400 member Universities, colleges and technical institutions and over 12,000 individual members from the US, Canada, and internationally. This makes Dr. d’Entremont’s win particularly noteworthy, as it means her contribution has stood out amongst educators from across North America and beyond.
Recently recognized for her contributions to teaching at UBC, Dr. d’Entremont was awarded a 2019/2020 Killam Teaching Prize, one of UBC’s highest teaching awards, for her dedication to student learning, access to engineering education, and excellence in teaching.
