BME graduate students honored at 2021-22 Engineering Graduate Program Awards

Each spring, the College of Engineering recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of our graduate students and postdocs through several prestigious awards. Graduate students also select an outstanding faculty mentor who has gone above and beyond to serve the graduate students in their program.

The Purdue University College of Engineering Magoon Awards are given to outstanding teaching assistants and instructors in memory of Estus H. and Vashti L. Magoon, who have influenced the lives of many engineering educators through this award. The award is made possible through the generous Estus H. and Vashti L. Magoon endowment, and the recipients each receive $2,000 and a certificate. This year's awardees from Biomedical Engineering are:

  • Barrett Davis
  • Angel Enriquez
  • Rachel Morrison

The Purdue University College of Engineering Outstanding Service Scholarship Award recognizes the engineering graduate students who provide outstanding service to the graduate student community, the School, the College, and/or the University. Each School nominates one student, and he or she each receives $2,000 and a certificate. This year's recipient from Biomedical Engineering is Angel Enriquez.

The Outstanding Research Award goes to students who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in research through publications, participation in professional organizations, and willingness to mentor others. The recipient of this year's award, worth $2,000 and a certificate, is Sarah Libring.

Finally, the graduate students in each School select an Outstanding Faculty Mentor to recognize his or her exceptional mentoring of engineering graduate students. These professors receive an engraved plaque with a personal tribute composed by the students. The graduate students chose Dianne Little, associate professor of biomedical engineering and basic medical sciences, to receive this year's award.

Congratulations to all of this year's award recipients from the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering!
