The Tau Mu Chapter of Pi Tau Sigma, the University of Maryland's Honorary Mechanical Engineering Society, honored a faculty member and a teaching assistant during their initiation ceremony on December 13th.

Professor of Mechanical Engineering Abhijit Dasgupta was awarded the Faculty Appreciation Award for his commitment to students. The students felt he did an exemplary job conveying the information typically taught in two or three courses in a single course in a clear, lucid manner. Pi Tau Sigma started this award to recognize professors that they feel have performed above and beyond the high expectations of university professors.

Victor Ovchinnikov was honored as the Fall 2005 Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award for his commitment to the students of ENME 331. Victor was presented with a plaque, and his name will be added to a permanent list of outstanding TAs outside the ME office. The award comes with a $500 honorarium. Victor is advised by Professor Ugo Piomelli.

Pi Tau Sigma members are those students who seek to create a closer bond of fellowship with each other and are striving and achieving in the highest ideals of Mechanical Engineering. The faculty advisor is Jungho Kim.
