June 3, 2015

Prof. Paul Prucnal, Professor of Electrical Engineering, was honored at the 268th Commencement ceremony by receiving the President's Award for Distuinguished Teaching.  This is Princeton's highest recognition for excellence in teaching. 
 
Prucnal is highly regarded as a mentor. One former undergraduate student embarking on graduate study in engineering said Prucnal was "incredibly kind and encouraging" even when the student changed his academic focus to electrical engineering and entered his class two weeks late. A current student said that Prucnal "tirelessly explains concepts until they are crystal clear," and would "go out of his way to understand his students' problems and offer meaningful advice."  To read the full story, please click here.
