Hall of Fame

The GW Engineering Hall of Fame was established in 2006 to recognize and honor distinguished SEAS alumni, faculty, staff, and friends who have contributed to engineering, technology, or management in a sustained and significant way during their careers. These are individuals who bring distinction to GW through their achievements and their contributions to their professions, the University, and society-at-large. By honoring their achievements, we help build the history that future classes of SEAS students inherit, and will be challenged by, and will use as a measure of their own success.
