The Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department annually issues the Outstanding BS, MS, and PhD awards to graduating students. The Awards and Honors Committee select the winner based on various criteria; including but not limited to the student’s GPA, research activities, publications, extra-curricular activities, etc. Should there not be a strong candidate to receive an outstanding degree award, the award will not be issued for that year.
