Ann Christy honored as ASEE Fellow
Engineering Education Professor Ann Christy has been named a fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). She is also a professor of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering, as well as assistant dean for Teaching and Learning in the College of Engineering.
ASEE is a nonprofit professional society committed to furthering education in engineering and engineering technology.
Christy is a registered professional engineer and a second-generation woman engineer; her mother worked as an industrial engineer in the aeronautical industry. She has received multiple teaching awards at the college, university, and national levels. Her research in bioenergy, environment and engineering education has generated over 130 publications, including over 40 on topics in teaching and learning. She has chaired ASEE’s Biological and Agricultural Division, and helped found and subsequently chaired the Education Division of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.
Christy earned both her B.S. (agricultural engineering) and M.S. (biomedical engineering) from Ohio State, and her Ph.D. (environmental engineering) from Clemson University. She will be honored at the upcoming 2019 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in Tampa on June 19.
The fellow designation, which is only conferred on one-tenth of 1 percent of the ASEE membership each year, is presented to those with outstanding qualifications and experiences in engineering and related fields.
In 2018, Christy’s Ohio State colleague Rick Freuler, also an engineering education professor, was named an ASEE Fellow.
