The School of Science has announced the winners of its 2015 Teaching Prizes for Graduate and Undergraduate Education. The prizes are awarded annually to School of Science faculty members who demonstrate excellence in teaching in their courses for that year. Winners are chosen from nominations by their students or colleagues.

“MIT has the best students in the world and it is a privilege to teach them,” said Michael Sipser, dean of the School of Science. “I am delighted that we are celebrating these three outstanding educators in the School of Science.”

Wolfgang Ketterle, the John D. MacArthur Professor of Physics, was awarded a prize for graduate education for his courses 8.421 (Atomic and Optical Physics) and 8.422 (Atomic and Optical Physics II).
