Every year, a number of engineering and computer science students are honored for their achievements in academics, community service, and competitions. Please join us in recognizing and congratulating them on their success.
The Dean's List
Students with a semester GPA of 3.5 or above in at least twelve credits of degree courses are placed on the Dean's List. Students with a final cumulative GPA between 3.2 and 3.59 graduate with distinction; those with 3.6 or above graduate with high distinction. Contact the Advising Office for more information.
