ISE Faculty & Students Honored with Chancellor Awards

2017 Chancellor’s Excellence in Teaching Award

Students who nominated Rupy Sawhney for his award say he’s a dynamic teacher who demonstrates his commitment to their future success by taking them on industrial visits, incorporating real-life examples into their lessons, and keeping them involved through games and projects. Because Sawhney is so involved in creating ties between the community and the university—in 2015, he was appointed to the Mayor’s Council on Disability Initiatives—he is a natural at encouraging students to understand how their engineering skills can be used to enhance society. One student observed, “The most important lesson he has taught is what our passion must be—to be of service to mankind.”
