Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award
The SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Teetor Program stimulates contacts between younger engineering educators and practicing engineers in industry and government. Reflecting the firm belief of its donor that engineering educators are the most effective link between engineering students and their future careers, the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Fund’s major program is focused on younger engineering educators. Its objective is to provide an engineering atmosphere in which these teachers can meet and exchange views with practicing engineers. Established in 1963, this award is administered by the Teetor Educational Award Committee and consists of a framed certificate, a trip to a major SAE meeting, and two years of SAE membership. The award is presented at either WCX: World Congress Experience or at a major SAE aerospace event.
Professor J.N. Reddy received the Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award in 1976 when he was an assistant professor in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at the University of Oklahoma, Norma, Oklahoma.
