Award Descriptions

In 1998, the College introduced the annual Oregon Stater awards to honor outstanding alumni and friends for their contributions to the engineering profession and to Oregon State University. There are three award categories determined by length of career and accomplishments:

Engineering Hall of Fame

Membership in the OSU Engineering Hall of Fame is reserved for Oregon Staters who have made sustained and meritorious engineering and/or managerial contributions throughout their careers.

Academy of Distinguished Engineers

Membership in the OSU Academy of Distinguished Engineers is awarded to mid-career Oregon Staters who have sustained distinguished contributions to the profession, field, OSU, or society at large. They have at least twenty years of experience beyond the BS and are still practicing their profession.

Council of Outstanding Early Career Engineers

The OSU Council of Outstanding Early Career Engineers is reserved for Oregon Staters who have distinguished themselves through professional practice and/or service to OSU, the profession, or society at large. These individuals have made early career contributions that identify them as future leaders in their profession or field. They have less than 20 years of professional experience beyond receipt of their bachelor’s degree.
