The faculty hosted its spring 2022 semester awards ceremony to recognize its outstanding students and generous donors.

Interim dean Dr. Octavia Dobre welcomed the recipients, their families and industry partners, and presented the Dean’s Awards.

The Dean’s Awards recognize students with academic averages in the top 10 per cent of their class.

In total, 71 students were recognized. Additionally, two students received Professional Engineer and Geoscientists Newfoundland and Labrador (PEGNL) Work-term Awards; two students received Angus Bruneau Awards; 15 students received Work Term Presentations Awards and another 26 students were awarded scholarships.

Emily Delaney received the PEGNL W.W. Cossitt Award: Senior Work Term Award and Ayman Mahran received the PEGNL Connections East Award: Junior Work Term Award.

Each award is presented three times annually and is based upon employer nomination, a student’s work-term performance, report and oral presentation and overall academic standing. The awards are valued at $1,000 and $500, respectively.
