Old Dominion University's graduate program in Engineering Management has received its third Founder's Award for Excellence in Academeic Leadership from the American Society of Engineering Management (ASEM) at the society's national meeting on Nov. 10. The award recognizes the best student chapter out of member universities.

Department Chair Resit Unal and assistant professor Rafael Landaeta were on hand to accept the award from ASEM President William McFadden during the conference in Chattanooga, Tenn. ODU also won the award in 2000 and 2005.

"Needless to say, we are very proud to get this prestigious award for the third time," Unal said. "It is a testimony to our excellent programs in Engineering Management at Old Dominion University and to the hard work we are putting in to maintain the high standard we set for our programs."

The graduate program was one of the first in the U.S. to be accredited, and also earned re-accreditation earlier this month.
