LEWISBURG, Pa. — Mike Hanyak, professor emeritus of chemical engineering, has been named the recipient of the 2011 CACHE (Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering) Award. The award is given for excellence in computing in chemical engineering education. He will receive the award at the American Society for Engineering Education meeting in Vancouver in June.

During his 35-year career at Bucknell, Hanyak has contributed to the areas of pedagogical software tools, computer-aided engineering design, instructional design, and departmental leadership.

Specific systems include a thermodynamic software system (BUTS), a linear equation system solver (BLESS), a formative assessment system for teamwork (TEAM 360), and an electronic learning system for engineering problem solving (eLEAPS). The last three are an integral part of Bucknell's first-year course and senior design course. His honors include the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching.
