The American Society for Engineering Education will honor Dr. Daniel B. Oerther with the 2019 Robert G. Quinn Award during the society’s 126th annual conference and exposition in Tampa, Florida, in June. Oerther is a professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering.
Established in 2001 by a gift from Agilent Technologies, the Quinn Award recognizes a faculty member for outstanding contributions in providing and promoting excellence in experimentation and laboratory instruction. The criteria for selection include: inspiring students toward excellence in laboratory work; innovation in laboratory or experimental experience; and a multidisciplinary approach to develop the complete engineer.
In 2003, Oerther received the Best Paper Award from the Environmental Engineering Division of ASEE, and he currently serves as the chair of the Engineering and Public Policy Division of ASEE.
