Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology

  • The American Society of Mechanical Engineers recently renewed doctoral student Allison Lee’s teaching fellowship. The award is given to only four or five students in the nation each year. Lee, who is in year four of her five-year mechanical engineering doctoral program, also did her undergraduate in mechanical engineering at BYU. She first received the fellowship in 2015 after submitting an extensive application that included GRE scores, her academic transcript and letters of recommendation. The fellowship allowed her to teach an undergraduate course at BYU.
  • After she graduates next August, Lee hopes to teach at a university that emphasizes teaching over research.

Following the discussion, guests can view all seven volumes.
