Dr. Donald W. Brenner, Associate Department Head and Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor, has been offered the 25th R.J. Reynolds Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research and Extension. The award is the most prestigious in the College of Engineering.
The R.J. Reynolds award was created in 1981 by the College of Engineering to honor a member of the engineering faculty who excelled in activities that promote the University’s mission of teaching, research and extension. The award is given by the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company through the North Carolina State Engineering Foundation. The award provides an annual stipend of $5,000 and may be renewed for up to five years.
Award recipients give a lecture to an audience of faculty on a topic of their choosing. Following the lecture, the College of Engineering will host a reception in honor of Dr. Brenner. A time and location has yet to be determined.
