The Frederick Emmons Terman Engineering Award for Scholastic Achievement has been awarded to six EE undergraduates. The Terman Award is one of the most selective academic awards. It is based on overall academic performance and is presented to the top five percent of each year's School of Engineering seniors. The 2016-2017 Terman Scholars include six undergraduate seniors from Electrical Engineering.
Terman scholars are invited to attend a celebratory luncheon and encouraged to invite the most influential secondary school or other pre-college teacher who guided them during the formative stages of their academic career.
Congratulations to all of the Terman Award recipients.
The Electrical Engineering seniors are:
• Darren Hau
• Min Cheol Kim
• Chayakorn Pongsiri
• Peter Franklin Satterthwaite
• Nick John Sovich
• Vivian Wang
The award is named after Fred Terman who was the fourth Dean of the School of Engineering at Stanford, serving from 1944-1958, after which he became the Provost at the University, and is generally credited, along with President Wally Sterling, as having started the process that has led Stanford to its present position among the leading universities of the world.
