Taber, Dr. Margaret R. Scholarship for Women in Electronic Engineering Technology
Dr. Margaret R. Taber is a respected teacher and author. She was a professor of electrical engineering technology at Purdue University until 2000. She received a master of science in engineering in 1967 from The University of Akron, and in 1976 she received a doctorate from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Her list of honors includes the Distinguished Engineering Educator Award from the Society of Women Engineers in 1987 and the naming of The Margaret R. Taber Microcomputer Laboratory in her honor at Purdue University.
Dr. Margaret R. Taber first established a scholarship for women in engineering but her years as a faculty member in engineering technology gives her a keen appreciation for the importance of women pursuing a career in electronic engineering technology. For this reason in 2007, she has established a second scholarship fund, The Dr. Margaret R. Taber Scholarship for Women in Electronic Engineering Technology, to provide support for outstanding women students in any of the areas of engineering technology, with special preference given to students in electronic engineering technology.
Through the establishment of this scholarship, Dr. Margaret R. Taber intends to endorse the importance of women using engineering technology to access the important and productive career opportunities available in this field.
