The Distinguished Engineering Alumni Awards (DEAA) were established in 1966 to honor outstanding graduates and friends of the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Each year these awards are given to individuals who have distinguished themselves through their outstanding personal qualities, knowledge and significant contributions to their fields. Awards are presented at the Engineering Awards Banquet held each spring.
Awards are made to distinguished alumni in the following categories: Education, Research and Invention, Government Service, Industry and Commerce, and Private Practice. There is also a special category for those alumni with distinguished careers outside of these categories, and for non-alumni with distinguished service to the college.
