The UH Cullen College of Engineering’s department of industrial engineering hosted their annual awards and honors banquet on Friday, May 2 to honor their outstanding alumni, donors, faculty, staff and students. The formal affair was held at Brady’s Landing restaurant. To view photos from the event, please click here.

The event featured a heartfelt tribute to George Hall, a well-known and beloved alumnus of the department who earned his master’s degree in industrial engineering from the Cullen College at the tender age of 86. To this day, Hall serves an inspiration to many Cullen College students, and a testament to the fact that it is never too late to follow your dreams.

Awards for scholarship donors and recipients were also presented at the banquet, along with outstanding faculty, staff and student awards. Photos of the award winners can be viewed here.
