Gouldstone Receives Teetor Award
MIE Professor Andrew Gouldstone has been selected as a 2010 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award recipient. This Society of Automobile Engineers award recognizes and honors younger educators who are preparing the future engineers to meet society's challenges.
Professor Gouldstone received both his B.S. and Ph.D. from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE) at MIT, in 1996 and 2001, respectively. The topic of his dissertation was mechanical behavior of small volume structures, for thin film and patterned line applications. He also worked in nanoindentation experiments, and experimental atomic simulations using bubble rafts.
The SAE Teetor Program stimulates contacts between younger engineering educators and practicing engineers in industry and government.Reflecting the firm belief of its donor that engineering educators are the most effective link between engineering students and their future careers, the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Fund's major program is focused on younger engineering educators. Its objective is to provide an engineering atmosphere in which these teachers can meet and exchange views with practicing engineers.The current decade places greater expectations upon the colleges and universities of the world to educate individuals who must successfully meet the challenges that face society. The purpose of the Teetor Award is to recognize and honor those younger educators who are successfully preparing engineers for this task.Established in 1963, this award is administered by the Teetor Educational Award Committee and consists of a framed certificate, a trip to a major SAE meeting, and two years of SAE membership. The award is presented at either the Awards Ceremony during the SAE World Congress or at a major SAE aerospace meeting.
