The Sharp Outstanding Teaching Award in Industrial Engineering

The Sharp Outstanding Teaching Award in Industrial Engineering was endowed by a philanthropic gift from Dr. James Franklin Sharp of New York, New York (originally from Chester, Illinois). Dr. Sharp received a BSIE from the University of Illinois in 1959 and a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University. After faculty positions at Rutgers and NYU, and a management position at AT&T, he founded SHARP SEMINARS in New York, which became a leading provider of training for the three-year series of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Exams.

This award is available for faculty members of the Department of Industrial & Enterprise Systems Engineering who demonstrate undergraduate teaching excellence in industrial engineering.
