Roy E. Larsen Award for Excellence in Teaching, 2009

David Pines spent more than a decade as a practicing engineer before joining the CETA faculty. His engineering experience has brought an increased emphasis on practical applications to the engineering curriculum. Pines receives high marks for his classroom teaching, but it is the lessons his students learn outside the classroom that may have the most profound impact. Working through Engineers Without Borders (EWB ), Pines and his students designed and installed a solar-powered well and a rooftop rainwater collection system to bring a clean, sustainable water supply to residents of Abheypur, India. That project has now expanded well beyond CETA, involving students from other schools and colleges at the University, as well as area high school students and professional engineers.
