About the CEAS Alumni Awards

Herman Schneider Distinguished Alumni Award
In conjunction with the University of Cincinnati’s 150th Anniversary in 1969, the College of Engineering inaugurated the Distinguished Alumni Award. It was designed to honor the achievements of outstanding graduates whose personal stature have reflected an exceptionally large measure of acclaim on our academic departments and the disciplines they represent. In 2008 the award was renamed the Herman Schneider Distinguished Alumni Award in honor of the college’s former dean, Herman Schneider, whose influence shaped the development of the College of Engineering dating back to the invention of the co-op program in 1906. The criteria for recognition in the Distinguished Alumni Award have included meritorious activities in professional engineering and the allied fields of science, industry, business, public service and education. The Distinguished Alumni Award plaque is located in the entrance area of Baldwin Hall.

Engineering Technology Award of Distinction
This award recognizes an individual, company, or alumnus/a who has not only made significant contributions in their professional field, but also has a proven personal commitment to the mission and vision of the programs in what was formerly the College of Applied Science.

Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award honors a CEAS distinguished alumnus/a whose career reflects the college's commitment to excellence, achievement, and service. Intended to recognize both longevity and consistency of accomplishment over one’s professional lifetime, this award is the highest alumni honor bestowed by the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Priority is given to individuals who have previously received one of the college’s Distinguished Alumni Awards, but it is not required.
