The College of Engineering at the University of Maine is honoring some of its finest today during the Francis Crowe Induction Ceremony being held at 2 p.m. at 120 Little Hall. Honored inductees include distinguished, honorary, faculty and graduate members.
“This is a wonderful way to recognize the hard work and tenacity of our engineering graduates for completing B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering,” says Dana Humphrey, dean of the College of Engineering. “In addition, we are pleased to be able to honor distinguished alumni with careers that span the field of construction to veterinarian.”
The purpose of the Francis Crowe Society is to recognize UMaine engineering graduates as they accomplish the formidable goal of completing their engineering degrees and to recognize others who have made considerable engineering contributions and honored the profession.
The college is honoring:
Distinguished Engineers: Each year each engineering department may nominate an individual who has made major contributions to advancing the art, science or practice of engineering.
Honorary Engineers: Honorary members are chosen by the college to honor them for their non-engineering contributions to the college community.
Faculty Dean’s Awards: Faculty members are nominated by the chairs of each department and then chosen by the dean of engineering.
Graduating Engineers: December 2010 class of engineering grads.
