As an organization committed to inspiring excellence in technical education, ABET admires and applauds remarkable achievements. Each year, ABET honors exceptional efforts by individuals, institutions and organizations through four awards: the Linton E. Grinter Distinguished Service Award, the ABET Fellow Award, the Claire L. Felbinger Award for Diversity and Inclusion and the ABET Innovation Award.
“We are proud of this year’s ABET Award recipients. This year’s honorees have demonstrated exceptional skill, commitment and dedication to improving the quality of STEM education worldwide,” ABET CEO Dr. Michael Milligan said. “We are truly inspired by their accomplishments.”
