Each year, the Engineering Council from The Grainger College of Engineering recognizes the top 10 percent of advisors across all the engineering departments. Recipients of the Outstanding Advisor Award are chosen by undergraduate and graduate students in engineering.

This year, five from MechSE were awarded with this honor: Undergraduate Programs Coordinator Missy Biehl, Assistant Professor Alison Dunn, Professor Bill King, Professor Chia-Fon Lee, and Professor Amy Wagoner Johnson.

Biehl has served as an academic advisor in the MechSE department for more than seven years. She helps to coordinate department and student-led events, and facilitates and encourages student involvement in undergraduate programs.

Dunn joined MechSE as an assistant professor in August 2014. She previously won this honor in 2017.

King is the Ralph A. Andersen Endowed Chair in MechSE. This is his first time receiving this award.

Lee joined MechSE in 1995 as an assistant professor. He has been awarded the Outstanding Advisor honor in 1997, 1998, 2010, and 2011.

Wagoner Johnson previously earned this honor in 2009 and 2012.

The Outstanding Advisor Award is traditionally presented at The Grainger College of Engineering Faculty Awards Ceremony in the spring, now likely taking place in Fall 2020.
