Iqbal earned the award, which includes a $1,000 honorarium, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of engineering and computing education research and scholarship.

A Utah State University alumnus, he currently teaches first-year engineering students and collaborates on an NSF-funded project, Engineering For Us All (e4usa), led by Engineering Education Professor and Chair Adam Carberry. The core mission of this project is to increase student and teacher access to engineering by demystifying engineering and democratizing engineering education for everyone. Before joining Ohio State, Iqbal was a postdoctoral research scholar on the project at Arizona State University.

Since 2011, the FIE New Faculty Fellows grant is made possible by the Educational Research and Methods (ERM) Division of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The Frontiers in Education (FIE) Conference is an international event focused on educational innovations and research in engineering and computing education leading the world to develop new research insights and educational approaches.
