An exciting new course from Carnegie Mellon University has earned the prestigious Carnegie Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Education.
Carnegie’s course, called Carnegie Course, means that the program’s authors have been awarded with the prestigious award for “outstanding achievement in education” by the American Educational Research Association (EARA).
The program is based in the University of California, San Francisco and the program is currently in its second year.
Carnegie University is a premier research institution and research university dedicated to teaching and learning, with an international reputation for research excellence and excellence in the arts and sciences.
This year’s Carnegie Medal winners are: Andrew W. Smith, Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon, was honored for his work on “The Physics of Motion,” a groundbreaking new mathematical model that describes the dynamics of motion in living organisms.
His work led to the development of an important theory of fluid dynamics and the development for understanding the fundamental physical processes underlying the universe.
Smith is a past Carnegie Medal recipient and is an emeritus professor of physics at the University at Buffalo.
His most recent award for outstanding achievement in the area of mathematics was in 2012.
A second recipient of the award, Dr. Rana S. Bhatia, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Carnegie, is a pioneer in mathematical mathematics and a pioneer of the field of differential equations, which is used to describe the behavior of fluids.
Bhata is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society and a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
She is the author of more than 50 books on mathematics, including Mathematical Problems in Physics (2002) and Introduction to Applied Mathematics (2008).
The Carnegie Medal is given annually to individuals who have achieved exceptional achievement in achievement in educational fields of the highest merit.
This is the first time the program has received this prestigious award.
Carnegie is the largest private research university in the United States and the nation’s oldest university.
Founded in 1894, it has more than 4,500 faculty members and nearly 300,000 students.
The Carnegie Institute for Science and the University have an active research mission that is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense.
The University of Pittsburgh is home to the Carnegie Research Institute, which researches the effects of environmental, economic, and societal factors on human society.
The university is also the home to Pittsburgh Zoo and Pittsburgh Museum of Art, which has been honored with an annual Designated Species Award.
