CHAMPAIGN — A standard of excellence. That’s what University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Department of Materials Science and Engineering students have come to expect.

Five MatSE faculty and one Materials Research Laboratory staffer earned a spot on the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students for the Spring 2021 semester. They include:

  • Pinshane Huang, associate professor
  • Laura Nagel, senior lecturer
  • Mauro Sardela, director of research facilities at MRL
  • Daniel Shoemaker, associate professor and Racheff Faculty Fellow
  • Antonia Statt, assistant professor
  • Jessica TerBush, lecturer

Huang and TerBush merited ratings that were outstanding. TerBush was also recognized again for the Summer 2021 semester.
