Engineering Education Group Recognizes CEE Researchers

A team of Georgia Tech researchers won an award last week from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) for a paper they wrote with some recent graduates.

The paper, “Development and Application of a Sustainable Design Rubric to Evaluate Student Abilities to Incorporate Sustainability into Capstone Design Projects,” won ASEE’s Stephen J. Ressler Best Paper Award.

Michael Rodgers, a principal research scientist in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (pictured left), and Carolyn Noyes, Georgia Tech associate vice president for learning excellence, wrote the paper with Mary Kate Watson and Tom Wall, two recently graduated Ph.D. students.

The team picked up their award at the 2014 ASEE conference’s Civil Engineering Division awards banquet.
