Uddin wins ANS Don Miller Award

NPRE professor and department head Rizwan Uddin was recently named this year’s winner of the American Nuclear Society Don Miller Award.

The Don Miller Award recognizes outstanding engineering, research and development, licensing or project achievements in the fields of nuclear instrumentation, control and human-machine interface technology from around the world.

“I am honored and humbled by my selection for the Don Miller Award,” Uddin said. “I thank the nominators and the selection committee. Much of the credit for any such award goes to the students who contributed equally, if not more.  I share this award with them.”

The award was established by the ANS Human Factors, Instrumentation & Control Division (HFICD) in 2009. It is named after Dr. Don W. Miller, Professor and Distinguished Program Chair at the Ohio State University Nuclear Engineering Program, a prior member of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards, and past ANS President.

Prof. Uddin has won many awards in his time at UIUC. Most recently, he was named the 2020 winner of The Grainger College of Engineering’s Teaching Excellence Award and the 2018 winner of the Campus Award for Excellence in Graduate & Professional Teaching.
