Hasler to receive Illuminating Engineering Society Presidential Award — again
Fred Hasler, associate professor of architectural engineering and construction science, will be presented with the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America Presidential Award at the society's annual conference in Indianapolis on Nov. 9. He will receive the award, given in part for exemplary efforts in support of IES, for the second consecutive year.
"To win this award once is a unique honor," said Ray Yunk, department head and professor of architectural engineering and construction science, "but for Fred to win it twice speaks directly of his commitment to both the society and the education of students in the field of lighting and illumination."
Hasler's work with the society has included serving as K-State's student group adviser, co-coordinator of the mentoring program, as well as committee work with society-level membership, videoconference lighting, leadership and engagement president's task force, and student and emerging professional workshop groups.
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America is the recognized technical authority on illumination, with its objective to communicate information on all aspects of good lighting practice to its members, the lighting community, and consumers through a variety of programs, publications and services.
Nearly 8,000 members strong, the group works with lighting in a variety of capacities around the world. Members share a common interest in lighting and a common desire to promote use of the latest, most innovative lighting technologies, with a focus on judicious use of energy in all lighting applications.
