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.

EAC/ABET-accredited programs from all engineering disciplines were invited to submit projects that integrate professional practice and education.
