Taskin Padir, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, received the Romeo L. Moruzzi Young Faculty Award. Presented in memory of a longtime faculty member in WPI's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, the award recognizes innovation in undergraduate education. Padir was recognized for his key role in developing the unified sequence of four courses at the core of WPI's pioneering undergraduate major program in robotics engineering, a challenging task given the multidisciplinary nature of the field and the fact that no other undergraduate robotics curriculum existed to serve as a model.
