Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) has been selected by the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as the winner of the 2009 InstEEE Mac Van Valkenburg Early Career Teaching Award. The award recognizes members of the IEEE Education Society who have made outstanding contributions to teaching unusually early in their professional careers, as evidenced by teaching performance, development of new teaching methods, and curricular innovation in fields of interest to the IEEE.

Wu was selected for her "outstanding contributions to undergraduate and graduate education in electrical and computer engineering, including innovative curricular development and influential mentoring." She will be presented with the award at the Frontiers in Education Conference to be held in San Antonio, TX, in October 2009.

In 2003, Wu received the George Corcoran Faculty Award from the University of Maryland for outstanding contribution to electrical engineering education and teaching. Her innovative curriculum development and course material have been incorporated by other colleagues worldwide into their teaching curricula. Graduate and undergraduate students whom she has mentored have won various research awards and prestigious fellowships.

The prestigious award is named after the late Dean of the College of Engineering at University of Illinois and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Mac Van Valkenburg symbolizes the highest quality of engineering education.
