Dean Tom Farris of the School of Engineering has announced that Assistant Professor Salim El Rouayheb has been selected for the A. Walter Tyson Assistant Professorship Award. The Tyson fund, established by A. Walter Tyson, a 1952 alumnus of the School, is used to recruit promising junior faculty. Funds made available through the generosity of the Tyson Family are used to offset the School's investments in talented young faculty. With this award, funds will be used toward the School commitments that were made toward Professor El Rouayheb's start-up package.
Salim will be publicly recognized at the SOE Faculty Recognition Event planned for September 19, 2019.
Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, Salim!
