         Distinguished Engineering Alumnus Award

    The Distinguished Engineering Alumnus Award was established by the
Faculty of the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University
in 1966 to honor engineering graduates who have been recognized for
outstanding achievements in

• Planning and direction of engineering work,

• Fostering professional development of young engineers,

• Contributing to knowledge in the field of engineering, or

• Bringing, in other ways, distinction to the University
  through engineering achievement.

   These engineering graduates have received an undergraduate or graduate
degree, or both, from the College of Engineering.

    Nominations for this prestigious award come from members of the
Engineering faculty, and a vote by faculty representatives determines the
recipients of the award.

    Announcement of the annual awards is made by the Dean of Engineering
at the Awards Banquet during Alumni Weekend. The recipient is presented a
bronze medallion and engraved certificate.

    In addition, each outstanding engineer's portrait hangs in Page Hall in a
gallery dedicated to recipients of the Distinguished Engineering Alumnus
