Norm Augustine Award

IEEE Fellow Dr. Karen Panetta, a Tufts University professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, received the Norm Augustine Award for communicating the excitement of engineering through outreach activities that promote careers in science and engineering, and encourage youth to improve the environment and change the lives of individuals and communities.

Panetta, who founded and serves as editor-in-chief of the IEEE Women in Engineering magazine, has devoted much of her energy toward encouraging young women and minorities to become engineers. She developed the highly successful international program "Nerd Girls," which challenges women engineers to complete interdisciplinary projects and connect with K-12 girls to generate interest in the profession. By demonstrating how engineering helps society and improves the quality of life for humans and wildlife, she has motivated thousands of girls to pursue engineering careers.

Panetta also developed India's "Health and Human Information System," a database program used to track and analyze disabilities in young children. It has been accessed by more than four million users and provides reliable data for medical doctors and the government to identify the causes of several disabilities. The Indian government of Tamil Nadu recognized her with an Award for Outstanding Contribution.

The Norm Augustine Award is presented to an engineer who has demonstrated the capacity for communicating the excitement and wonder of engineering. The award is conferred on those rare individuals who can speak with passion about engineering -- its promise as well as its responsibility -- so that the public may have a better understanding of engineering and a better appreciation for how engineers improve our quality of life.
