Joseph Majdalani, a faculty member in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, has received the Abe Zarem educator award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The award was presented at SciTech ’18 in Kissimmee, Florida. 

Majdalani was cited for his work in counseling and advising, in particular for his student mentorship of Auburn graduate student Langston Williams, who was presented with the 2018 Zarem Distinguished Award in Astronautics, also presented at the conference. 

Now in his fifth year at Auburn University, Majdalani holds the rank of professor and the Francis chair of excellence. He is a previous recipient of the Zarem educator award, and has mentored about a dozen students who have placed in the AIAA-sponsored Southeast competitions.
