Janet Lumpp, professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the First-Year Engineering program at the University of Kentucky College of Engineering, has been selected to receive one of three Outstanding Materials Engineer (OMSE) Awards from the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue University. The award recognizes Lumpp’s work in the areas thin film growth and surface modification methods for microelectronics, as well as her efforts in outreach and education through her activity with the Kentucky Space Grant program. Lumpp will visit Purdue later this semester to receive her award.
“It’s exciting to be recognized by my home department,” said Lumpp. “The First-Year Engineering program at Purdue led me into materials engineering, so I guess I’ve come full circle now!”
