Every year the Rochester Engineering Society selects an outstanding engineer or engineers from the community to honor as a “Rochester Engineer of Distinction” at our Annual Gala. The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding achievement in and contributions to the profession by engineers in the Rochester region and to promote the importance of engineering practice to society.
In the tradition of other special recognition awards such as the Rochester ‘Athena’ and ‘Forty Under Forty’ Awards, the finalists for the RES Engineer of the Year Award, and the recipient, will be recognized in a variety of public venues and media during the weeks preceding the Gala. The Award will be presented at the Gala. This process is an exciting opportunity for the engineers involved, as well as for their companies, organizations, and affiliate societies.
The RES has a two-stage nomination/selection process. The initial nomination form allows individuals and organizations to identify and present a candidate. From these initial forms, the Nominating Committee will select candidates to advance to the next stage. At that point, the Nominating Committee will contact the candidate with a more extensive form which is used to collect specific, detailed information which will then be used by the Selection Committee to evaluate each candidate in selecting our finalists.
