Professor William Genereaux wins October Quest award
Engineering technology professor, William Genereaux, has been awarded the Quest faculty award by his peers for the month of October. 

Quest is a faculty-driven initiative to foster a stimulating learning environment for students through collaborative and interactive sessions among faculty members. The program was created to encourage faculty members to collaborate and create a culture of innovative teaching practices. 

It encourages faculty to get involved and to see what is working and what is not working for students in the classroom. The Quest program is all run through the online learning tool, Canvas, where all faculty are put into the program as students. This allows faculty to see Canvas from a student perspective and learn effective ways to introduce the tools Canvas offers within their classrooms. 

The program was started this academic year by faculty members: Patricia Ackerman, Jung Oh and Siny Joseph. If you have any questions, please contact Siny Joseph, assistant professor, at

Airport management students get real world field training in industry lab
Hands-on, applicable experience is a big portion of what makes getting an education on the Kansas State Polytechnic campus so valuable. 

Dr. Tara Harl, who is leading the airport management program, has followed this mission by incorporating industry labs into her classes. On Tuesday, the airport planning and management II class spent time on the ramp working with area professionals during an airport rescue and fire demonstration. The students also were instructed by Tim Rogers, executive director of the Salina Airport Authority, during the learning lab.

Students enjoy fall campus activities
From puppies, pumpkin carving and "rave" parties, Kansas State Polytechnic students participated in many programs last week to celebrate Halloween and the mid-semester. To the right are photos from the events.

Special thanks to the ET department, Professional Education and Outreach, Programming Board, Residence Life and Student Life for making each gathering so much fun. 

A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. K-State Salina's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.
High-Five to Saeed Kahn!
Congratulations to engineering technology professor, Saeed Kahn, who recently published a chapter in "Aeronautical Telecommunications Network: Advances, Challenges, and Modeling." Saeed wrote chapter six of the publication titled, GNSS Multi-path Interference and Mitigation for UAVs in Urban Canyon Environments. The research chapter helps promote the advances in research within the unmanned aircraft systems field. 
Well done!
