Secondary considerations are service to the IEEE, IRE or AIEE, service to the engineering profession in general, technical accomplishments and outstanding technical leadership.
The Faculty Course Development Award is to support and encourage faculty members to develop a new course or significantly revise an existing course with specific focus on Instrumentation and/or Measurement, taught in an accredited (in accordance to the accepted rules of the country of applicant) engineering/physics/science curriculum.

The I&M Outstanding Young Engineer Award recognizes an outstanding young I&M member who has distinguished him/herself through achievements, which are technical, of exemplary service to the I&M Society, or a combination of both early in their career.
