Prof receives national recognition for contributions to engineering education
Professor Sean Maw, P.Eng., is among the inaugural class of fellows of the Canadian Engineering Education Association/Association Canadienne de L’Education en Genie (CEEA-ACEG).
The honour recognizes noteworthy service to engineering education, engineering leadership, or engineering design education.
Maw is a key member of the University of Saskatchewan College of Engineering team developing a brand new, first-year engineering program for the college.
When it launches in fall 2021, the first year will feature a new structure with shorter, more intensive classes, a broader curriculum and a new assessment philosophy – all with the goal of better preparing students for their upper years in the program and their engineering careers.
Maw also helped lead the development of Truss VR, virtual reality software that helps USask Engineering students better learn how trusses work.
His contributions to the CEEA-ACEG include organizing and presenting at events; he also served two years on its national board.
