Please join us in celebrating the winners of the 2022 Engineering Excellence Awards!
Since 1969, North Carolina engineering firms have entered their most innovative projects and studies in ACEC/NC's annual Engineering Excellence Awards program (EEA) "the Academy Awards of the engineering industry" honoring the year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments.
Projects that are grand winners at state level competitions are eligible for ACEC's national EEA competition.
This year's emcee is Dr. Stephanie Luster-Teasley, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.
Dr. Luster-Teasley’s research accomplishments include receiving patents from the United States, Great Britain and Canada for development of a controlled-release chemical oxidation polymer system for remediation of water and wastewater. She is the first African-American woman and first faculty member at A&T to receive international patents. Her technology was licensed in 2017 by a company to market nationally as an emerging remediation method for groundwater and soil contamination.
After earning her B.S. in chemical engineering at A&T, Dr. Luster-Teasley earned an M.S. in chemical engineering and Ph.D. in environmental engineering, both from Michigan State. She returned to A&T in 2004 after working in private industry as an environmental engineer. Her research interests include environmental remediation, water sustainability and engineering education. She is a full professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering where she served as the Department Chair for 4 years.
