Engineering Alumni Association Presents Egleston Awards

On Nov. 11, the Columbia Engineering School Alumni Foundation honored Helmut "Hap" W. Schulz and Masanobu Shinozuka with its highest honor, the Egleston Award for Distinguished Engineering Achievement. First awarded in 1939, the medal is given annually to a graduate of the school in recognition of the notable application of engineering principles, the development of processes or techniques, or the furtherance of a specific branch of the profession.

In the keynote address, President Lee C. Bollinger laid out his vision for the future of science and engineering at Columbia.

Schulz has made significant contributions to the separation of uranium isotopes and waste-to-energy technology and has held major management roles at Union Carbide as well as senior government positions. Shinozuka is the dominant intellectual leader in the creation of the discipline of probabilistic mechanics and structural reliability. He is now distinguished professor and chair of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Irvine.
