In 1998, the Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the CEE Alumni Board formally initiated the CEE Alumni Achievement Awards Program as a means of honoring both younger alumni and those who have graduated from the department years ago. Two award categories were created within this program.
Alumni may be selected for induction into the Academy of Distinguished Alumni based upon a review of their overall career accomplishments and contributions to the profession, their community, and service to Virginia Tech. Also, younger alumni (within 15 years of graduation with their BS degree) may be selected to receive an Outstanding Young Alumni Award.
Below is a list of the alumni who have been inducted into the CEE Academy of Distinguished Alumni.
Each year, candidates for these awards come from nominations submitted directly to the CEE department by our alumni. To submit a nominee for consideration for an award, please send resume, nomination letter and other supporting documents to:
