SoE Alumni Honours and Awards Nomination Categories

Nominations for the 2020 School of Engineering Alumni Honours and Awards are now closed. We will announce this year's recipients at the end of November. Please stay tuned for more information.

This year, the School of Engineering will honour alumni/organizations who have stepped up during COVID-19 and have made a positive impact. We look forward to celebrating those individuals who acted quickly and have demonstrated exceptional leadership through this pandemic.

Award categories include:

  • Young Alumnus/a of Honour: recognizes a University of Guelph Engineering graduate of the last 10 years. The award is presented to an individual who has distinguished him/herself in the profession, the community, the university and/or a related field. Nominees demonstrate significant professional and/or volunteer leadership since graduating from the university. Eligibility requirements: University of Guelph Engineering graduate of the last 10 years who has been out for at least one year (Classes of 2010-2019).
  • Mid-Career Award: recognizes an alumnus/a who graduated 10 to 25 years ago from the University of Guelph’s School of Engineering. This award is presented to an individual who has earned respect within the engineering profession and in the broader community, already attained significant achievements and gives promise to future contributions. Eligibility requirements: University of Guelph Engineering alumnus/a who graduated 10-25 years ago, inclusive (Classes of 1995-2010).
  • Award of Excellence: is the highest honour awarded by the School of Engineering and recognizes an individual or a group/organization (company, foundation or association) for its contributions to the community, engineering, education, business and industry so significant that they bring honour to their alma mater, fellow alumni and the University of Guelph. This award recognizes lifetime achievement or a sustained commitment to excellence. Nominees demonstrate both professional and volunteer contributions made on international, national, provincial and/or local levels, as well as demonstrated leadership in business, cultural activities and contributions to other organizations within our communities. Eligibility requirements: individual or group/organization (company, foundation or association) that has demonstrated a lifetime achievement or a sustained commitment to excellence.

 

Due to COVID-19, the Honours and Awards celebration will be postponed. Award recipients will be celebrated virtually in November 2020 and then again at the School of Engineering 50th anniversary celebration in June at Alumni Weekend 2021.
