Rising Renaissance Engineer Spectrum Award

The new Rising Renaissance Engineer Spectrum Awards program in the COE was established to recognize a diverse body of students across all the degree-granting departments in the College of Engineering for their initiatives and achievements in educational (projects related to course work), research (projects relevant to their discipline) and professional development activities (internship, co-op, or summer job). This unique award is inclusively for junior and senior undergraduate students from all six COE degree-granting departments, and will specifically promote underrepresented groups in the COE. This awards program complements existing awards in the college honoring faculty, staff, and alumni for their research, teaching, and service. With the Computer Science Department spearheading the effort, this project is a collaborative partnership among representatives from all COE departments. The recipients will receive a recognition plaque and scholarship.

Two winners will be selected from each College of Engineering department, and each will receive a cash prize of $300 and an award plaque. All winners will be recognized at the E-Week Engineering Banquet in February.
