The Hall of Fame recognizes and honors distinguished School of Engineering and Applied Sciences alumni, faculty, staff, and friends who have contributed to engineering, technology, management, or public service in a sustained and significant way during their careers. These are individuals who bring distinction to George Washington University through their achievements and contributions to their professions, the university, and society at large.
