Two faculty members in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering were recently honored by the Women in Engineering Program at Georgia Tech. Michelle Dawson, Assistant Professor, and Yonathan Thio, Lecturer, each received the 2013 Excellence in Teaching Award. Only two of these awards were presented this year.

The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering (WIE) program is dedicated to recruiting top female students into engineering majors and, once enrolled, to ensure the highest level of retention by fostering an environment that encourages curiosity, creativity and intellectual and personal growth. WIE strives to redefine the engineering profession as a positive societal force with the potential to improve the quality of life through the creation of world changing technologies.

WIE challenges and inspires women to achieve their fullest potential as engineers and as leaders, and celebrates their accomplishments and successes. The WIE programs are driven by the belief that the success of Georgia Tech's female students will be a natural result of efforts to improve the overall climate for all students, both male and female. While WIE programs are designed to support and encourage female students, their implementation is inclusive of all students.
