Benjamin Garver Lamme Award

George P. "Bud" Peterson, provost at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), received the Benjamin Garver Lamme Award recognizing his contributions as an outstanding teacher, researcher, administrator and practicing engineer. His research is widely cited and utilized by both practitioners and researchers alike. He has provided unique leadership in engineering education programs at Texas A&M University (TAMU) and RPI. In his role as provost at RPI, Peterson has been instrumental in the institutional transformation currently underway, playing a key role in improving the quality, size and diversity of the faculty and improving the diversity of the tenured/tenure-track faculty by more than doubling the number of underrepresented minorities and increasing the number of women by 40 percent. Under his leadership as provost, both the quality and size of the student body have increased significantly; programmatic offerings have expanded to include four new Ph.D. programs and four new undergraduate degree programs; and externally sponsored research awards have almost doubled. At TAMU, Peterson served as head of the department of mechanical engineering (1993-1996), executive associate dean of the College of Engineering (1996) and associate vice chancellor for the Texas A&M University System. He was awarded the Halliburton Professor of Mechanical Engineering and was named the College of Engineering's Tenneco Professor (1991).

Established in 1928, the Benjamin Garver Lamme Award recognizes excellence in teaching, contributions to research and technical literature and achievements that advance the profession of engineering college administration.

Frederick J. Berger Award

Harold L. Broberg, associate dean of the College of Engineering, Technology and Computer Science at Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne (IPFW), received the Frederick J. Berger Award in recognition of his leadership in enhancing the engineering technology curricula at IPFW. Through his innovative work, he developed a new and more effective assessment process for accreditation reviews and continual improvement; created a new M.S. in technology degree; initiated a new B.S. degree in computer engineering technology; and cemented partnerships with industrial firms throughout northeast Indiana. As associate dean, he coordinated the assessment-based TAC/ABET visit, which resulted in accreditation of the nine engineering technology programs within the three engineering technology departments. …
