Voiland College Awards

Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture (VCEA) awards are given annually to honor those who epitomize the highest levels of excellence in the pursuit of the college’s mission and goals. Each spring we put out a call for nominations for these awards, and recipients are acknowledged during VCEA’s Convocation Award Ceremony. Convocation is typically held in mid April.
