Distinguished Alumni Award
In 2012 the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering established the Distinguished Alumni Award to recognize alumni who have made significant and meritorious contributions to their fields.
Alumni are nominated by their advising professors or the department chair, the Department Council then approves their selection. In early May, the faculty and staff gather to honor the recipients at a luncheon. The recipients also have an opportunity to share the story of their education at the University of Maryland; how it has prepared them for and shaped their career.
If you have a suggestion for a Distinguished Alumni, contact our Director of External Relations, Amanda Stein at (301) 405-8189 or email@example.com.
