Every year we are able to recognize the first-year graduate student who has performed academically at the highest level during the intensive first year of core course work. The Schwerdtfeger Award is name for Prof. Werner Schwerdtfeger, who, while on the faculty from 1962-1980 taught first-year graduate students the fundamentals of the thermodynamics, kinematics, and fluid dynamics that served as the foundation for their remaining courses and thesis research.
