MSE Students Recognize Top Educators – 2020 IMPACT Student Choice Awards

On January 25, the annual MSE Dinner Dance – Buckyball took place at the Met – Midtown Event Theatre.

Buckyball is the biggest event of the year organized by the MSE students club! Here, students, faculty members, staff, and alumni get together to celebrate and announce the winners of the IMPACT Student Choice Awards for Instructor and Teaching Assistant of the Year.

Selected by the undergraduate student body “for dedication and excellence in teaching,” the 2020 recipients were:

Prof. Steven Thorpe – Instructor of the Year

KokLong Ng – Teaching Assistant of the Year

This award refers to both materials testing and the influential effect of professional dedication and excellence. The awardees received a framed certificate encased with two distinct samples of impact testing from the ballistics experiment conducted in MSE 101, courtesy of current instructor, Dr. Scott Ramsay.

Also, students from each year were recognized by their peers for different talents and received a 3D printed Buckyball.







The night was full of fun and happiness… take a glimpse at the highlights below:
