Our 2023 nominees will be reviewed and selected in late April, in preparation for our CECS Honors Reception in Oct. 2023.

Each year, the UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science honors our alumni who have achieved exceptional personal and professional success in their respective areas and bring immense pride to their alma mater.

We celebrate the best and the brightest from all six of our college departments, including our young alumni rising stars. We also recognize one individual for their exceptional achievements with a college-wide Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest college honor that can be bestowed upon our alumni. This year for the first time we have also added a new award to recognize excellence in a current engineering or computer science student with a bright future.
