American Society for Engineering Education: Electrical and Computer Engineering Division - Frederick Emmons Terman Award

The Frederick Emmons Terman Award of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Division was established in 1969. Although Frederick Emmons Terman served Stanford University in many capacities, including head of the electrical engineering department, dean of the school of engineering, provost, vice president, and acting president, it was while he was an instructor and professor that he guided engineering students William Hewlett and David Packard, eventually urging them to set up their successful partnership. In 1942, as a result of directing the Harvard University Radio Research Laboratory, which was responsible for developing countermeasures against enemy radar, Dr. Terman received an honorary doctor's degree from Harvard, was decorated by the British government and was awarded the Presidential Medal for Merit, the highest award for civilians in the United States.

The Terman Award is bestowed annually upon an outstanding young electrical/computer engineering educator in recognition of the educator's contributions to the profession.

The Award: The award is sponsored by the Hewlett-Packard Company and consists of a $5,000 honorarium, a gold-plated medal, a bronze replica, a presentation scroll and reimbursement of travel expenses for the awardee to attend the ASEE Frontiers in Education Conference, where the award is presented.

Qualifications: In light of the successes of Dr. Terman and those of his students, the recipients of this award must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be a principal author of an electrical/computer engineering textbook, or other copyrighted electrical/computer engineering curriculum materials, which have been:
  2. Published/disseminated prior to June 1 in the year the author becomes 40 years of age, and recognized by peers to be outstanding for its original contribution to the field.
  3. Be additionally recognized for achievements in teaching, research, guidance of students and related activities.
  4. Be an electrical/computer engineering educator under 45 years of age on June 1 of the year in which the award selection is made.
  5. Be a full-time member of a college faculty and actively engaged in teaching in the United States or Canada at the time that the award winner is selected.
