Sherif Attallah received “Educator of the Year” award from the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA).

“This award recognizes a MCAA student chapter faculty advisor for serving as an advisor, educator, and mentor of students who plan to develop a professional career with the mechanical construction industry….[it] honors your involvement and engagement as an industry academic leader.” –MCAA

Sherif founded the MCAA Student Chapter shortly after he came to Ball State. Through this organization and Sherif’s guidance the students have been active with industry partners and participated in the MCAA competitions, where they have placed nationally. As a result, students have become more aware and knowledgeable of the opportunities in the mechanical sector and more students are securing internships and permanent positions in the mechanical industry.
