The award, given by Faculty of Engineering Dean Prof. Philipina A. Marcelo, Ph.D., and Regent Rev. Fr. Roberto L. Luanzon, Jr., O.P., consisted of a plaque and a golden name plate with the awardee’s name and award inscribed on it.

The induction into the Hall of Fame serves as recognition of the remarkable efforts of deserving Engineering alumni who do not only succeed in their individual careers but also manifest leadership in the community.
