The CA Anderson Awards have been a tradition within the ISE Department for the last 46 years. It is a time to celebrate the achievements of ISE’s students, faculty and staff. But this year, history was made for the second year in a row. Last year was the first time the department had a tie for its top prize, the CA Anderson Outstanding Faculty Award, between Paul Cohen, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, and Nur Ozaltin, Teaching Assistant Professor.
