UW electrical engineering (UW EE) professor Bruce Darling was awarded the College of Engineering Faculty Award in Teaching for his outstanding contributions to engineering education. The annual award recognizes a faculty member who fosters innovative and lasting contributions to engineering education and displays high-level commitment to students both in and outside of the classroom.

Professor Darling has a 37-year career with the engineering department; he has been instrumental in laying the foundation for several UW EE curricula and launched a microfabrication laboratory.

Throughout his time in the department, he has remained dedicated to his students. Recently, as a faculty advisor, Professor Darling supported students as they launched EcoCar to national competition, receiving first place for their topic paper and presentation for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Award.
