Dr Cesar O Malave, dean of Texas A&M University at Qatar (Tamuq), has received the 2017 John L Imhoff Global Excellence Award for Industrial Engineering Education from the American Society for Engineering Education in recognition of his accomplishments.
The award is presented annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to the industrial engineering discipline, who exemplifies the highest standards of the professorate in industrial engineering, and who has demonstrated global co-operation and understanding through leadership and other initiatives.
Dr Malave was recognised at a ceremony at the society’s Annual Awards Luncheon during its 124th Annual Conference and Exposition in Columbus, Ohio.
“I am honoured to receive this award,” Dr Malave said.
“It has been a great journey for me as an educator. I want to thank all my colleagues for their support and I especially want to thank all my students for giving me the opportunity to share my knowledge with them.”
Before coming to Tamuq in July 2016, Dr Malave was professor and head of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University and holder of the Sugar and Mike Barnes Department Head Chair.
His major career accomplishments are in the areas of manufacturing systems analysis, engineering education innovation, and diversity development for engineering faculty and undergraduate student programmes.
He has been the principal investigator or co-principal investigator of more than $35mn in sponsored research and academic projects.
Dr Malave is recognised internationally for his contributions to engineering education.
As lead principal investigator for Texas A&M, Dr Malave co-ordinated all activities related to curricula development, implementation, and outcomes assessment across partner sites.
He disseminated this educational model through workshops in the United States and many countries.
He joined the industrial engineering faculty at Texas A&M in 1987.
