The Medal of Excellence Awards, established in 2006, recognize graduates of Rutgers University School of Engineering who have distinguished themselves professionally since graduation in industry, academia, government, research, and business, while raising scholarship funds to support success.
Honorees are celebrated at a networking dinner event that is attended by alumni and SoE faculty and students, as well as an impressive representation of local industry members and other distinguished guests.
In addition, the Rutgers Engineering Society (RES) presents its Distinguished Engineer Award at this event. Read honoree bios>>
