Chris Fietkiewicz, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has won the Srinivasa P. Gutti Memorial Teaching Award.
The award is presented annually by the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi to honor members of the engineering faculty that show an exemplary commitment to undergraduate teaching.
Fietkiewicz obtained a BS degree in 1991 in electrical engineering through a joint program between Messiah College and Temple University in Pennsylvania. He then worked for 10 years in industry, first as an electrical engineer in industrial automation, and later as a software engineer in Silicon Valley.

His transition to academia began with two years as an adjunct professor at Bryant & Stratton College in Cleveland. Fietkiewicz completed his PhD in computer science at Case Western Reserve in 2010 and worked as a postdoctoral associate at Downstate Medical Center, State University of New York.

He accepted the award at this year’s Engineers Week Banquet.
