Amelito Enriquez Recognized with Outstanding Teaching Award
Amelito Enriquez, Ph.D., Cañada Professor of Engineering and Mathematics, was recently recognized with the 2016 American Society for Engineering Education Pacific Southwest Section Outstanding (ASEE PSW) Teaching Award. This is the first time that a community college instructor received the award. Additionally, the award qualifies Professor Enriquez to compete for the national teaching award next year. Professor Enriquez was nominated by Dr. Wenshen Pong, Director of the San Francisco State University School of Engineering and letters of support were provided by Cañada College Engineering graduates and fellow colleagues, community college engineering faculty.
Professor Enriquez was recognized during the awards banquet of the 84th Annual American Society for Engineering Education Pacific Southwest Conference, which was held at Cal Poly Pomona on April 21-23. The Pacific Southwest section covers California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Arizona. This award was given by each ASEE section and focused on outstanding classroom performance, recognized teachers of engineering and engineering technology students and served as an incentive to make further significant contributions to teaching. Congratulations, Professor Enriquez!
