POTSDAM -- Jan DeWaters, a Clarkson University engineering professor, was recently awarded the Mara H. Wasburn Early Engineering Educator Grant from the Women in Engineering Division of the American Society for Engineering Education.
The grant will cover all expenses for DeWaters to attend the 2014 Annual Conference of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) this June in Indiana.
“This is an early career award,” says DeWaters, “but this is not my first career. I have followed a nontraditional career path that provided me with opportunities to pursue a variety of interests, including raising my children and supporting my husband's career. I was a consulting environmental engineer before I went on to get my doctorate when I was 50, and I joined the faculty at Clarkson in 2011.”
