About Hall of Fame

The College of Engineering has more than 25,000 alumni, many of whom are very accomplished. The college's Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished engineers and their achievements to inspire future generations of engineers. From helping usher in the era of digital television to guiding the development of California's most recognizable structures, each inductee has made meaningful contributions deserving of honor and preservation.

The College of Engineering hopes to inspire current and future students and strengthen our connections with our best and brightest alumni. This is accomplished by recognizing, honoring and preserving the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of alumni engineers and engineering technologists who have distinguished themselves in the community through leadership and professional achievement.

The Hall of Fame also seeks to enhance and strengthen our connections to industry and our professional networks. The event will highlight many ways students are positively impacted by external support and sponsorship opportunities that are available.

Faculty, staff, and students from across campus who participate in the Engineering Hall of Fame event will learn about engineers and their achievements; students will be inspired to Dream Big as they continue to pursue their education; the campus community will learn about the diversity within engineering; and partnerships will be enhanced within the campus community and with industry representatives and alumni.
