The GW Engineering Hall of Fame was established in 2006 to recognize and honor distinguished SEAS alumni, faculty, staff, and friends who have contributed to engineering, technology, or management in a sustained and significant way during their careers. These are individuals who bring distinction to GW through their achievements and their contributions to their professions, the University, and society-at-large. By honoring their achievements, we help build the history that future classes of SEAS students inherit, and will be challenged by, and will use as a measure of their own success.
