Congratulations to Dr. Bob Celmer ‘78, Program Director of CETA’s Acoustical Engineering programs, who has been selected to receive the Acoustical Society of America’s 2017 Rossing Prize in Acoustics Education!
The Rossing Prize in Acoustics Education was established in 2003 from a generous gift made to the Acoustical Society Foundation by Dr. Thomas D. Rossing to recognize an individual who has made significant contributions toward furthering acoustics education through distinguished teaching, creation of educational materials, textbook writing and other activities.
The Prize will be presented to Professor Celmer during the Plenary Session of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) fall 2017 meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, in December 2017. At that meeting, Professor Celmer will deliver the “Rossing Prize Lecture” in a session sponsored by the Committee on Education in Acoustics. He was named a Fellow of ASA in 2014.
The University of Hartford has the only ABET-accredited undergraduate B.S.E. Acoustical Engineering and Music degree. Professor Celmer is the Program Director of the program, which requires students to have both the math and science background, as well as successfully pass the Hartt entrance requirements, including an audition.
Congratulations again, to Dr. Bob Celmer!
