Student Awards

Recognizing Excellence

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.

Distinguished Graduate Student Researchers

The College of Engineering and Computer Science recognizes graduate students who demonstrate excellence in research at UM-Dearborn. A faculty member may nominate any student currently enrolled in a graduate program at CECS. Each winter, up to three winners will be recognized with a signed certificate from the dean and a $1,000 award.

Chancellor's Medallion

Each fall and winter term one graduating senior from the College of Engineering and Computer Science is chosen as a Chancellor’s Medallion recipient based on their scholarship, leadership and service. 

The Honor Scholars Awards are organized by the Provost's Office and recipients are recognized at the Honors Convocation. The award is given to one student in each degree major. Undergraduate students must have at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA and a minimum of 90 credit hours earned to qualify. Graduate students must have at least a 7.0 cumulative GPA and a minimum or 75 percent of their program completed to qualify.
