Seeking nominations for the 2017 Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame!  Nomination Deadline: September 2, 2016

The Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame Awards recognize engineers, technology leaders, and scientists within the Silicon Valley region who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and have made significant contributions to Silicon Valley and the Greater Bay Area communities. Induction of Award recipients is held annually; the 2017 ceremony will occur during National Engineers Week at the Silicon Valley Hall of Fame Awards Banquet.

Following selection, the council holds an induction ceremony as part of its annual Engineers Week Banquet in February. Many engineers and technology leaders have been inducted since the first Engineering Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 1990 and, to date, the Hall of Fame includes individuals who have become household names, as well as individuals who are relatively unknown. All, however, are distinguished by their outstanding engineering and leadership accomplishments.

Selection Criteria: Professional Achievement (50%), Service To The Profession (30%), Service To The Community (20%)
