ExxonMobil Excellence in Teaching Awards (EMETA)
The ExxonMobil Excellence in Teaching Awards programme, designed in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE), celebrates excellence in engineering teaching in the UK & Republic of Ireland.
In 2012 it is the intention to make eight awards. Each selected candidate’s university department will be recognised as an ‘ExxonMobil Centre of Teaching Excellence’ for 12 months and will receive a range of benefits including a cheque for £5,000.
The awards are open to university lecturers, and reward those who show a strong commitment to teaching, promote engineering as a rewarding and creative career, and establish industrial-academic links and other activities which ultimately ensure the output of top quality graduate engineers.
The awardees are selected by a panel of judges consisting of ExxonMobil and RAE representatives. Through these awards, ExxonMobil continues to support excellence in engineering teaching.
Applications for the 2012 round of awards must be received by 12 October 2012. More details and how to apply may be found on the RAE’s website
