Dr. Sahra Sedigh, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Missouri S&T, was selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) first Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) symposium. She is one of 49 of the nation’s brightest young engineering researchers and educators selected for the symposium.
Engineering faculty members in the first half of their careers who are developing and implementing innovative educational approaches in a variety of disciplines will come together for the event to be held Nov. 15-18, in Herndon, Va. The participants were nominated by fellow engineers and chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants.
“The Frontiers of Engineering Education program will create a unique venue for engineering faculty members to share and explore interesting and effective innovations in teaching and learning,” said NAE President Charles M. Vest. “We intend for FOEE to become a major force in identifying, recognizing and promulgating advances and innovations in order to build a strong intellectual infrastructure and commitment to 21st-century engineering education.”
Sedigh joined Missouri S&T’s faculty in 2004. She earned her master’s and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Purdue University and her bachelor’s degree from Sharif University of Technology. She is a member of Eta Kappa Nu and a faculty advisor to the Gamma Theta Chapter.
