MAE Undergraduate Student Awards

Each year during National Engineering Week (E-Week), the MAE Department recognizes its students, alumni, and faculty for outstanding academic performance and service.

Given to a graduating senior who selflessly helps fellow students and has demonstrated academic excellence, ethical behavior, an ability to work well in teams, and a dependable and diligent work ethic. This award is given in honor of Brandon Paulsen (BS '97, MS '98) who, as an MAE student, demonstrated these attributes. Brandon passed away in 2005 from cancer.
