The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering annually selects Outstanding Undergraduate and Graduate Students of the Year and awards them with certificates at the annual departmental banquet and award ceremony. The names of the recipients of the awards are included in plaques and displayed in the Engineering Building.
A regular (not student-at-large) graduate student must meet the following minimum criteria to be eligible for this award:
Two lists (one for undergraduates and one for graduates) of students who meet the eligibility criteria must be submitted to the faculty by the department chair (or by someone designated for this task by the Chair) at least 2 weeks before the award ceremony.
Voting will consist of one vote per faculty member (including the department chair) for each award cast by a confidential ballot.
The award recipient will be the student who receives the majority of the votes in each award category. In the case of a tie, faculty can decide whether to have a run-off ballot between those who tied or to present awards to all those who are tied. The results of the voting will be kept confidential until they are officially announced.
A student who qualifies for an award, regardless of he/she wins the award or not, will be eligible for the award in the following years during which he/she is enrolled as a regular student in this department at NIU.
