Dean's Appreciation Award

It is acknowledged that the College of Engineering has many valued supporters who are recognized and appreciated continuously during the course of the on-going activities in the college. This award is intended to honor those special individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech. It is expected that this award will be given rarely. The award may go to engineering alumni or to honor non-engineering alumni who have brought distinction to the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech.
