Sollenberger Selected to Participate in MTA Program

Congratulations to Derek Sollenberger, doctoral student in computer science, who was recently selected to participate in the Mentored Teaching Assistantship (MTA) Program sponsored by the NC State College of Engineering. Sollenberger will participate in the program in the fall semester with the support of his mentor, Dr. David Thuente, computer science professor and director of graduate programs.

The goal of the MTA program is to provide engineering graduate students with an opportunity to gain teaching experience beyond that of a regular teaching assistant prior to entering an academic career.

Through the MTA program, Sollenberger will receive an extra monthly stipend from the College of Engineering, in addition to the normal teaching assistantship stipend.  The program also requires that he meet with his mentor at least once a week to discuss his progress.
