Michigan Tech’s Dean of Engineering, has been initiated as a Fellow of the American Society of Engineering Education.
Janet Callahan, who is also a professor of materials and engineering, said she was pleased and honored to join a distinguished community of ASEE Fellows who support engineering education and have dedicated their careers in support of that purpose.
The American Society of Engineering Education, was founded in 1893, and has remained the preeminent authority on the education of the engineering world.
Outstanding leadership, teaching effectiveness and championing diversity and inclusion within the community, were just a few of the things that got Callahan nominated.
In addition to her other work for the society, Callahan has authored and co authored over 50 ASEE educational publications and currently serves as Chair of the Women’s Engineering Division.
Callahan is set to join an elite club, as only 9 fellows were selected this year, and no more than 1/10th of 1 percent of individual ASEE membership may be elected a fellow in any given year.
