The Kansas State University College of Engineering Hall of Fame recognizes successful alumni who have reached the highest levels of achievement in their professional endeavors and who are committed to maintaining the highest standards of their profession. In addition to alumni, each year one non-alumnus may be so honored. All alumni who are at least 20 years beyond graduation are eligible. K-State faculty members are also eligible upon reaching emeritus status. Hall of Fame candidates are nominated by the College of Engineering administration, faculty and alumni, and represent the top one percent of graduates the college.
