College of Engineering salutes distinguished alumni

May 17, 2016

The professional contributions and life accomplishments of College of Engineering (CoE) grads took center stage this spring when the College honored them at the 2016 Alumni Awards Induction Ceremony. Inductees are alumni who have distinguished themselves through professional practice and/or service to the Institute, the engineering profession, or society at large.

The College of Engineering Alumni Awards were created in 1994. Each year, CoE recognizes, with this induction ceremony, select alumni who have contributed to the profession, advanced in their careers, and enhanced the lives of others both personally and professionally. Hosting the 2016 induction ceremony were CNN news anchor Fredericka Whitfield and Gary S. May, (EE), Southern Company Chair and Dean of the College of Engineering.

Among those being feted were 27 College of Engineering alumni, each singled out for unique contributions to the Institute's legacy. College of Engineering Dean, Gary S. May, lauded the group's impact on career and community. "Those honored tonight are stellar examples of the achievements and leadership inspired by Georgia Tech engineers," he said. "They have contributed in countless ways to the field of engineering, to Georgia Tech, and to their communities."
