Dr. Sohrab Asgarpoor, associate dean for undergraduate programs, accepted the ASEE Excellence in Engineering for Veterans Award for the College of Engineering.

The College of Engineering is among three institutions recognized for “Excellence in Engineering for Veterans” by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Military Engineering Awards Committee.

The award was accepted on behalf of the college by Sohrab Asgarpoor, associate dean for undergraduate programs, June 18 during the ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition in Tampa, Florida.

For the award, the committee reviewed and evaluated multiple higher education institutions on such factors as campus life and veteran’s experiences, resources, treatment and veteran-friendliness, among other areas.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the college have a long history of serving and supporting student veterans for their academic success. U.S. News & World Report has recently recognized Nebraska as a “Best College for Veterans.”
