The following UW Engineering and Applied Science faculty members received "Top Prof" recognition at the recent Mortar Board Top Prof ceremony.

Top Profs are selected by members of the senior honor society, Mortar Board, and are nominated for making a positive impact on student lives at UW. These professors go beyond normal classroom expectations to help their students succeed, both in college and later in their careers.
"Being selected as a 'Top Prof' is a great honor for professors because they are chosen by the students," says Professor and Mortar Board Advisor David Whitman.
Selection as a member of Mortar Board is one of the highest honors that a UW senior can achieve. Mortar Board recognizes students who have excelled in and out of the classroom, based on scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board members participate in many projects and activities throughout the year, both on campus and in the Laramie community.
Congratulations to these outstanding professors.
