AIAA/ASEE John Leland Atwood Award



The John Leland Atwood Award of the ASEE Aerospace Division and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) was established in 1985. Lee Atwood entered aviation when it was little more than experimentation in a daring sport, though he believed that this new field would be the cornerstone of our security and serve as a principal medium of world commerce. The Atwood Award is bestowed annually upon an outstanding aerospace engineering educator in recognition of the educator’s contributions to the profession.
