NCEES Engineering Award

In 2009, NCEES introduced this award to recognize college engineering programs for engaging their students in collaborative projects with licensed professional engineers.

The NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education was established to promote understanding of the value of licensure and to encourage partnerships between the engineering profession and education.

2014 call for submissions

EAC/ABET-accredited programs from all engineering disciplines were invited to submit projects that integrate professional practice and education. Projects must be in progress or completed by March 15, 2014.

Entry deadline: May 5, 2014


The NCEES Engineering Award includes six cash awards.

  • Grand prize: $25,000
  • Five awards: $7,500 each

Use of the funds awarded is at the discretion of the winning engineering departments/colleges. NCEES encourages their use for the advancement of projects connecting professional practice and education.

The grand prize winner will be recognized at the NCEES annual meeting in August 2014. All award-winning submissions will be exhibited at the event and featured on the NCEES website, in NCEES publications, and in other related professional publications.
