UH Engineering Professor Selected for 2002 CACHE Award

University of Houston engineer Ernest J. Henley has been selected to receive the 2002 Computers and Chemical Engineering (CACHE) Award from the American Society for Engineering Education.

The award, which includes a $1,000 stipend, is given by the Chemical Engineering Division of the ASEE for significant contributions in the development of computer aids for chemical engineering education.

The citation for the award states that Henley has made seminal contributions to chemical engineering education. His books with H. Bieber in 1959 and E. Rosen in 1967 explained the algebraic concept of solving material and energy balances. He also helped establish the CACHE Corporation, a group that has focused for more than 25 years on promoting the use of computers in teaching.

As part of his activities for CACHE, he funded and produced over 250 educational modules. The Chemical Engineering Modular Instruction series is still sold by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. The citation also notes Henley's insightful classroom teaching and ability to provide the perspicacity that makes complicated problems seem easy to students.

Henley, professor emeritus of chemical engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, will be presented with the award in Montreal on June 17, 2002.
