The CEE program yet again wins two prestigious National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Engineering Awards, which recognize engineering programs that encourage collaboration between students and professional engineers. It is rare for an institution to win more than one award and now our CEE department has won a total of 7 awards, earning two of the five $7,500 awards now three years in a row plus the first win back in 2009!
The two SU projects honored with 2013 NCEES awards were "Design Options for a Creek Crossing for a Utility Company" and "Structural Evaluation and Retrofit of a Warehouse." Click here to view the profiles of the winning submissions.
EAC/ABET-accredited programs from all engineering disciplines were invited to submit projects that integrate professional practice and education. The winners were selected by a jury of NCEES members and representatives from academic institutions and professional engineering organizations. “Projects like these are innovative ways to teach students about the vital importance of technical competency and ethical practice in the engineering profession,” said NCEES President Gene Dinkins, P.E., P.L.S. “We hope they will inspire other engineering programs to introduce similar collaborations.”
The awards were presented recently at the Annual Fall Senior Design Kickoff Luncheon in October 2013 by WA Department of Licensing Member Chun Lau.
