Class of 2022/2023 Academy of Distinguished Engineers – Nominate a Leader!


Dear Colleagues:

Each year, UConn Engineering recognizes individuals who have helped us in profound ways.  Since 1983, we have paid special tribute to:

  • Exceptionally distinguished alumni whose career achievements are of an enduring seminal nature (Distinguished Professional Achievement Award – Alumni);
  • Dedicated individuals who have made dramatic and enduring contributions to our School (Distinguished Engagement Award – non-alumni); and
  • The GOLD Rising Star Award (alumni who graduated less from 10 years ago).

In 2023, we will mark our 40th year the School has inducted Distinguished Engineers into the Academy of Distinguished Engineers.   Please assist us in identifying superb nominees for these awards; self-nominations are also welcome.

To nominate a candidate, please complete your nomination via this link – by March 20th, 2023. 

If you have any questions regarding the nomination process, please contact Noreen Wall ( ).

We hope you will take this opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of one of our outstanding engineering graduates or friends of the UConn School of Engineering.  Thank you!


Kazem Kazerounian
Dean and Professor of Mechanical Engineering
