Engineering Research Excellence Awards

The Engineering Research Excellence Awards (EREA) are presented each year to tenure or tenure-track faculty members in the Faculty of Engineering in recognition of outstanding research accomplishments. The recipient of the award will be selected on a competitive basis and judged by a panel of faculty members consisting of one member from each Engineering department, including Architecture.  Faculty members nominated for the EREA award are not eligible to serve on the review committee.  Previous winners of the EREA are ineligible for re-nomination for at least three years following receipt of their prior award.
