The Mortenson Center is hosting the Third Annual Global Engineering Awards recognizing a professional and a student whose work aligns with the Mortenson Center’s mission and vision. Nominations are now open and will be accepted until January 31, 2021. The Global Engineering Awards seek to highlight the work of individuals who contribute to the field of global engineering. This encompasses not only those students and professionals in traditional engineering disciplines, with a focus on positive impact in low- and middle-income countries, but also those who are in related disciplines that take a solutions-oriented approach to the same challenges - water, sanitation, energy, food, shelter, and infrastructure. These related disciplines include global health, environmental science, atmospheric science, agricultural science, geography, governance, policy and community advocacy.
Recipients of the award will be notified by February 5, 2021 and the awards will be presented to recipients at the virtual Global Engineering Awards in conjunction with the Colorado WASH Symposium taking place March 11 & 12, 2021.
