Scott Bevins, the associate vice chancellor for information services at UVa-Wise, has been awarded the Distinguished Technology and Engineering Professional designation by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association.
The honor is basked upon documented evidence of leadership and management skills, continuing participation in association education programs and demonstration of leadership in the association and community.
“Having the Distinguished Technology and Engineering Professional designation bestowed upon me by the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association this month is truly an honor,” Bevins said. “Technology has always fascinated and intrigued me, and it goes well beyond that of pleasure or entertainment. I am interested in the ‘technology’ itself and where that technology may lead and the impact it would have on the economy, both domestically and globally.”
Bevins said technology has eroded all barriers in the exchange of ideas and information.
“With technology growing at such a rapid rate, continued success requires all of us to be lifelong learners,” he said. “The DTE designation reaffirms the importance that I place on technology education and on the education of our citizenry of all ages.”
The DTE professional program acknowledges the essential principles of adult learning and incorporates both recognition and credit for the work experiences and accomplishments of those in the field.
