Professor Laurent Burlion received the 2020-21 Provost's award for Excellence in Teaching Innovations in recognition of his new drone course proposed this Spring 21. The course was a response to the covid crisis, which particularly impacted international exchanges and education. It was run in parallel at CentraleSupélec, France, and at Rutgers. Rutgers students worked at home on some Crazyflie drones and collaborated with CentraleSupélec students. The FACE Foundation funded the drones used in both universities.
