Holloway is NSF Outstanding Advisor of the Year
At the FutureTruck 2003 Awards Ceremony held June 12 in Dearborn, Michigan, Professor of Mechanical Engineering David Holloway received the National Science Foundation Outstanding Faculty Advisor of the Year Award.
Holloway received this award for his outstanding work in incorporating the Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition (AVTC) activities into the classroom and for his significant impact on the engineering education of his students. This award carries a $20,000 fund to be used to enhance the integration of AVTC activities into the undergraduate curriculum for the benefit of the students.
Over the past three decades, Holloway has selflessly dedicated himself to improving the educational experience of our students. He has made profound contributions to integrating automotive technology into the curriculum and engaged hundreds of students in real-world projects aimed at advancements in vehicle technology: lower fuel consumption, improved performance, better environmental characteristics and enhanced functionality.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has supported this award since 1997 and recognizes the enormous amount of time and energy for a faculty advisor to pull together a team of students and professors to undertake a time-consuming project such as FutureTruck.
