Prof. Robert Tuholski, chair of the Department of Engineering Technology, was honored in October with the Continuing Education Faculty Award, presented by the University Continuing Education Association of New England.

The award, formally bestowed at a ceremony in Newport, RI, Oct. 26 by Pauline Carroll, director of Faculty Services and Program Planning, honored Tuholski for his service to the University, to the students and to the region; his efforts in teaching and advising and his work in corporate outreach. Along with Corporate and Distance Market Development Director Catherine Kendrick, the award committee noted, Tuholski has been instrumental in developing partnerships and training programs for a range of companies, including 3M, Lucent, BAE Systems, OFS Fitel, Gillette, Brooks Automation and Textron Systems.

Tuholski’s efforts have led to a successful accreditation of the engineering technology programs by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.  UMass Lowell, largely as a result of his initiatives, is the only public university in the state that offers accredited part-time degree programs in the field of engineering technology.
