Hugh Bruck named UMD Distinguished Scholar-Teacher
Congratulations to Professor Hugh Bruck (ME), who has been selected as a 2016-2017 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher by the University of Maryland. Bruck is a Maryland Robotics Center faculty member who develops multifunctional skins and compliant structures for robotics. He is a specialist in new techniques for rapid manufacturing and characterization of functionally graded, multifunctional, biologically-inspired, and nanocomposite materials.
The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher program recognizes faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement along with equally outstanding accomplishments as teachers. Nominees for the award are selected by their peers; the winners are chosen by a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teachers. The Scholar-Teachers bring a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and serve as models of what a professor at a fine research university should be. Winners receive a cash award to support instructional and scholarly activities, and make a public presentation in the fall semester on a topic of scholarly interest.
