RJR and Alcoa Awards

RJR Award

The R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research and Extension was established in 1981 within the College of Engineering to honor a member of the engineering faculty who has demonstrated superiority in several areas of activity that relate to the University’s three-fold mission of teaching, research and extension. The annual award is supported by the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company through the NC State Engineering Foundation to recognize scientific and educational achievements in fields of engineering. The recipient is given a $25,000 prize distributed over five years.

Dr. Jacob Jones, Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and University Faculty Scholar at North Carolina State University, is the thirty-sixth recipient of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research and Extension. Jones gave his award lecture titled, “Embracing Convergence Research: The Journey from Ferroelectric Materials to Nanotechnology, Bayesian Statistics, and Water-Food Systems” through a virtual presentation on Monday, Nov. 9, 2020.
