Thomas E. Hutchinson Award

Each year, the Thomas E. Hutchinson Faculty Award honors leading engineering professors who have demonstrated a love of teaching, genuine outreach to their students, and have significantly contributed to the engineering school. Trigon established the student-nominated award in the name of Thomas E. Hutchinson, or Hutch as many call him, who served as Trigon’s faculty advisor from 1991 until his retirement in 2005. This award is dedicated to him for his excellence in teaching and commitment to impacting students’ lives. The Thomas E. Hutchinson Award is normally presented in the dome room of the Rotunda. Due to Rotunda renovations the annual ceremony is now held in Hotel E for the time being.
