Dear Colleagues:

Each year, UConn Engineering recognizes individuals who have contributed significantly to the reputation or advancement of the School by inducting them into our Academy of Distinguished Engineers. Since its inception, membership in the Academy has focused on:

  • Exceptionally distinguished alumni whose career achievements are of an enduring seminal nature; and
  • Dedicated individuals who have made dramatic and enduring contributions to our School.

In 2021, we mark the 38th year that the School has inducted selected nominees into the Academy of Distinguished Engineers.   We are asking for your help in identifying superb nominees for this honor; self-nominations are also welcome.  The School’s Academy Selection Committee will review each nomination received with care and serious consideration.

To nominate a candidate, please:

We are hopeful that in 2021 we will be able to host an in-person celebratory awards dinner, during which each new Academy inductee will be formally honored by the Dean and University administration, which will take place in mid-September 2021.

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

We hope you will take this opportunity to acknowledge the achievements and 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
