The College of Engineering Alumni Awards were created in 1994 to recognize outstanding engineering alumni from the College.

Currently, the College of Engineering recognizes select alumni who have contributed to the profession, advanced in their careers, and enhanced the lives of others both personally and professionally. These outstanding alumni are reviewed by each of the eight schools within the College and formally submitted for selection. The distinctive categories are listed below.

The measure of our success is not seen only in educating our students, but in those students’ achievements and contributions after leaving campus. Those being recognized, as well as those who have been honored at past ceremonies, are stellar examples of the success and leadership the College hopes to inspire.
