Noel (Nunnally) Schulz (BSEE ‘88, MSEE ‘90) was recently honored with two national professional awards, the IEEE Power Engineering Society Walter Fee Outstanding Young Engineer Award and the Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) C. Holmes MacDonald Outstanding Teaching A-ward. The HKN Outstanding ECE Professor Award is presented for excellence in teaching. Professors are nominated for the award by their students.

The Walter Fee Award is presented each year to engineers who are 35 years or younger, for “outstanding contributions in the leadership of technical society activities.” Schulz has donated part of her Walter Fee Award for scholarship funds to the Virginia Tech ECE power engineering program.

Schulz is an associate ECE professor at Mississippi State University, where she has been on the faculty since 2001. She teaches courses in power systems, energy conversion, electrical circuits and technical communication in engineering.

Her research interests are in the application of computers, including intelligent systems, to solve problems in power systems operations. She has obtained more than $1.5 million in research funding and has authored 11 journal articles and 40 conference publications. She earned an NSF Faculty Development Career Award in 1998. Before joining Mississippi State, Schulz was an associate professor at Michigan Technological University, where she was named the Electrical Engineering Professor of the Year in 1998.

She earned her Ph.D. in electrical engineering with a minor in computer science from the University of Minnesota in 1995.
