NCEES Engineering Education Award

Call for 2021 NCEES Engineering Education Award entries

The NCEES Engineering Education Award recognizes college engineering programs for engaging their students in collaborative projects with licensed professional engineers. It was established to promote understanding of the value of licensure and to encourage partnerships between the engineering profession and education.

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 competition, NCEES will be accepting those entries for the 2021 competition cycle.  If a program completed a project in 2020, it can be entered for a chance to win one of the 2021 cash awards. Please consider entering projects that integrate professional practice and education.

At the discretion of the award jury, up to eight cash awards are presented each year. The winning engineering departments/colleges decide how to best use the cash award. NCEES encourages the winners to use the funds for the advancement of projects connecting professional practice and education.

Grand prize: $25,000
Up to seven awards: $10,000 each

Competition schedule:
Projects must be in progress by March 15, 2021
Projects due May 17, 2021
