Mohammad Asif Zaman, PhD candidate, is recognized for his outstanding teaching in electrical engineering. He has been awarded the 2019 Centennial Teaching Assistant Award. The award program recognizes outstanding instruction by TA's in the Humanities and Sciences, Earth Sciences, and Engineering schools.
Asif was nominated by faculty, peers, and students. He received a stipend and certificate in recognition of his extraordinary contributions as a TA in EE134: Introduction to Photonics, taught by EE Professor Lambertus Hesselink.
Asif is a committed, and extremely organized colleague. As an instructor, he took on massive tasks to organize, repair, inventory, order, and label optical components in the lab. His effort allowed EE134 students to make the most of their experience— several indicated they chose EE as a concentration because fo their experience during the course.
A few excerpts from Asif's nominations:
- Asif has been one of the best – if not the best – TA I have had the pleasure to co-teach with.
