The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) was founded in 1893 as the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education (SPEE). As part of the observation of its 125th anniversary in 2018, ASEE is compiling these first-hand histories of its Fellow grade members.
The grade of Fellow is one of unusual professional distinction. It is conferred by the Board of Directors upon an ASEE member with outstanding and extraordinary qualifications who has made significant contributions to engineering or engineering technology education or an allied field and to ASEE. The first Fellows were named in 1983. As of 2017 some 400 ASEE members have received this honor.
