ESF Professor Finalist for Humanitarian Award
Dr. Ted Endreny recognized for dedication to humanitarian engineering
Dr. Theodore Endreny, professor at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), was a finalist for the Global Humanitarian Engineering Award.
Endreny, chair of ESF's Department of Environmental Resources Engineering, has been a Peace Corps volunteer and Fulbright Scholar. His development engineering courses have lead many students to pursue careers in international development and innovative design. Besides teaching, Endreny conducts pioneering work focusing on water supply in Honduras. His motivation to better the world, and encouragement of students to keep an open mind, has made him a favorite amongst the students on campus. Endreny has dedicated over 23 years of his life to humanitarian engineering.
The award, supported by IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, was presented at the Global Humanitarian Technology Conference Oct. 20-23 in Silicon Valley, Calif. It was developed to fill a global gap in celebrating the valuable contribution that engineers make towards improving the lives of those less fortunate. In addition, they serve to recognize outstanding achievement, provide role models, and demonstrate less popularly known roles of engineering in society. IEEE's membership includes computer scientists, software developers, information technology professionals, physicists, medical doctors, in addition to electrical and electronics engineers.
Endreny was one of three finalists for the award, which was won by Dr. Ashifi Gogo for his work to battle global counterfeit medication.
