Nine faculty members from the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) have been named to the Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: Class of 1934 CIOS Honor Roll by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). The ECE faculty members receiving this honor are Asif Khan, Bernard Kippelen, Frank Li, Benjamin Yang, Muhannad Bakir, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Matthieu Bloch, Omer Inan, and Sung Kyu Lim. This honor roll recognizes Georgia Tech’s top teachers for fall 2020.  

This Class of 1934 distinction is one of several recognitions made annually by CTL to instructors and recognizes faculty members with exceptional response rates and scores on the Course-Instructor Opinion Surveys (CIOS). A high response rate (85 percent or greater) is required for consideration, and the composite scores for three CIOS items are used to rank instructors. Recognition is given to instructors who teach both small classes and large classes. Small classes are defined as having at least 15 students and being no larger than 39 students, and large classes are defined as 40 students or larger. 

“Having nine faculty members receive this honor from the Center for Teaching and Learning is truly remarkable,” said Magnus Egerstedt, Steve W. Chaddick School Chair and Professor in ECE. “I’d like to encourage all of these faculty members to keep up the excellent work. We are very proud of you and your achievements.”
