Jeff FrolikJeff Frolik, assistant professor in the School of Engineering at UVM's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS), has received the IEEE Green Mountain Innovation Award for leadership and innovation in support of IEEE students. The IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology.

"Frolik has a vision for ensuring student success," says Jim Monzel, Chairman of the IEEE Green Mountain Section. "He challenges students to employ technologies and methodologies uncommonly seen at the undergraduate level."

According to Frolik, the real reward is the privilege of working with remarkable students. "This award," he says, "recognizes the many hours of work outside regular courses conducted by UVM students on IEEE sponsored projects such as Formula Hybrid."

Our congratulations to Dr. Frolik on this well deserved honor.
