Brocato again honored for excellence

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) has once again recognized its Mississippi State campus representative for superior service.

This is the fourth time the international organization has recognized Brocato. He is a three-time winner of its Most Outstanding Campus Representative Award.

"ASEE is the premier professional organization for those dedicated to improving engineering pedagogy," Brocato said. "Our long-standing involvement with ASEE is, I believe, one of the reasons for the Bagley College's excellence. I am deeply honored both to serve as our campus representative and to be recognized for my service."

Currently the BCoE has 78 ASEE members among its ranks. Many of these members have served in southeastern section and national-level leadership roles including Dean Sarah Rajala, a past president and Fellow of the organization.

Brocato joined the BCoE in 1999 and has served as its ASEE representative since 2004.
