SEI Fellow Nancy Mead to Receive Distinguished Education Award

May 7, 2015—IEEE has named SEI Fellow Nancy Mead winner of the 2015 IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE) Distinguished Education Award. The award will be presented to Mead at the 37th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), to take place May 16-24 in Florence, Italy. 

The TCSE’s Software Engineering Distinguished Education Award is presented annually for outstanding and sustained contributions to software engineering education. In selecting Mead for its 2015 Distinguished Education Award, the TCSE noted her many contributions to the field over the past 30 years. In particular, the committee cited Mead’s “energetic and enthusiastic involvement in founding the Conference on Software Engineering Education and Training (CSEE&T) and her leading role in the development of the IEEE-CS/ACM Master of Software Assurance Reference Curriculum.”     

“It’s both exciting and humbling to receive this award,” said Mead. “I could not have done this without the support of many dedicated volunteers from the education community in both software engineering education and, more recently, in software assurance education. I’m especially appreciative for the support that I have received from SEI and sponsoring organizations such as Department of Homeland Security.”
