Undergrads and Masters Students Elect Professors and TAs of the Year
Each spring ORIE undergrads and Master of Engineering students vote separately for Professor of the Year and Teaching Assistant of the Year.
This year the undergraduates selected Peter Jackson as Professor of the Year. They selected both Anke van Zuylen and Chandrashekhar Nagarajan as Teaching Assistants of the Year. The current Master of Engineering students selected Shane Henderson as Professor of the Year and Yinan Huang as Teaching Assistant of the Year. Nagarajan and Van Zuylen are expected to receive their Ph.D. degrees in August. Both are working under the guidance of Professor David Williamson. Huang joined the Ph.D. program in 2005.
The awards were announced to students and faculty at a pizza lunch on May 13, by Roberto Yunen as head of the Master of Engineering Student Leadership Council and Bernardo Menezes as head of the Cornell student chapter of INFORMS, the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
