Aristotle Award

The 2014 Cal1 for Nominations

The 2014 Call for Nominations for the Aristotle Award is now open. Submission deadline in Thursday, April 17, 2014. Please read the 2014 Call for Nominations for complete details.

A primary goal of SRC is to produce advanced degree students with the capability to work effectively in the semiconductor industry. The Aristotle Award was created by the SRC Board of Directors in March 1995 to recognize supported faculty whose deep commitment to the educational experience of SRC students has had a profound and continuing impact on their professional performance and consequently a significant impact for members over a long period of time. The Award is intended to acknowledge outstanding teaching in its broadest sense, emphasizing student advising and teaching during the research project thereby contributing to the maturation of the student.

A call for nominations is issued in January of each year. Nominations are accepted from the SRC community for faculty who have been funded under SRC contract research for a period of at least six years. The nominations originate from various sources, including the SRC Board of Directors, Technical Advisory Boards, mentors, university researchers, government agencies that participate in the SRC research program, and alumni of the SRC graduate student program. During the June Board of Directors meeting, an Awards Committee comprising of industry and academic participants review the nominations based on the following four equally-weighted selection criteria: innovations in student advising, provision of learning experiences for students and deployment of statistical methodology, creation of an environment that encourages development in leadership skills, and student exposure to and interaction with industry. Finalists and nominators are then notified of the Board of Directors' decision in July, and the Aristotle Award is presented in the fall.
