Ralph J. Slutz Student Excellence Award

This award was established in 2010 through a gift made by one of Dr. Slutz’ former students, Xiaodong Zhang (MSCompSci’85, PhD’89) to annually recognize students in computer science who have established a record of academic excellence and/or technical research and innovation. Zhang is currently the chair of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ohio State University. In 2011, Dean Robert H. Davis presented him with the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award, which honors outstanding graduates and friends of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
