Dr. John Steadman, dean of the College of Engineering at the University of South Alabama, was elected to the Academy of Fellows of the American Society for Engineering Education at the 2005 awards banquet held in conjunction with the ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in Portland, Ore.
The honor, bestowed each year to only one-tenth of one percent of active members, recognizes sustained outstanding leadership in engineering education. In order to be eligible for this prestigious distinction of fellow grade, candidates must hold an active member grade at the time of nomination, must be a member for a period of 10 years, and must have a nomination initiated by another ASEE Fellow or active member.
The ASEE annually recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of engineering and engineering technology educators through the ASEE awards program. By their commitment to their profession, desire to further the society's mission, and participation in civic and community affairs, ASEE award winners exemplify the best in engineering and engineering technology education.
The ASEE is a nonprofit member association dedicated to promoting and improving engineering and technology education.
