Ruby ElKharboutly, associate professor of software engineering at Quinnipiac, has been named the American Society for Engineering Education’s Northeast Section Outstanding Campus Representative.

The award recognizes those ASEE campus representatives who have achieved excellence in their roles as the society's representative on campus.

The campus representative acts as a liaison to help determine members’ interests and reactions to society programs and publications, to stimulate interest among the faculty in section and national meetings, and to promote individual membership and involvement. This award is bestowed annually upon ASEE campus representatives who have demonstrated staunch support for ASEE on their campuses.

“I am honored to receive this award from ASEE, an organization that advocates for excellence in teaching,” ElKharboutly said. “This is a high priority for us at the School of Engineering.”

ElKharboutly earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from American University in Cairo and her doctoral degree in computer science from the University of Connecticut. She joined the Quinnipiac faculty in 2013.
