Brian Bingham, a Mānoa assistant professor, was selected as one of the nation’s most innovative young engineering educators by the National Academy of Engineering and will participate in the organization’s second Frontiers of Engineering Education symposium in December.

Bingham was selected following a highly competitive nomination and selection process by NAE and will join 52 other early-career faculty members from around the country who are developing and implementing innovative educational approaches in a variety of engineering disciplines. During the event, participants will focus on ways to ensure that students learn the engineering fundamentals, the expanding knowledge base of new technology and the necessary skills to be an effective engineer or engineering researcher.

Bingham specializes in the development of innovative tools to expand the ability of ocean science for exploring, understanding and protecting the marine environment including precision underwater navigation, autonomous vehicles and diverse sensors.

“We are proud of the NAE’s recognition of Professor Bingham as a rising young star in engineering education,” says Peter E. Crouch, dean of the College of Engineering. “We look forward to many more accomplishments and contributions from him in the future.”
