Outstanding EEE Senior Award

EEE has an annual award that is conferred each academic year to recognize the excellence of one member of the senior class. This award, the Environmental and Ecological Engineering Outstanding Senior Award, is selected based on academic performance, leadership, service, and professional activities.

A testament to the quality of the EEE program is this: thirty-four students were eligible for the EEE Outstanding Senior Award this year. The recipient is selected by vote of the EEE faculty.  The recipient will receive a plaque and their name will be placed on a permanent display to serve as an inspiration for future students.
