RANDOLPH CENTER – Students in Vermont Tech’s School of Engineering and Computing were nominated by program faculty for demonstrating academic excellence, student leadership, professionalism, and engineering-based analysis and problem solving. Nominated for Student Engineering Technician or Student Engineer of The Year was Malcolm Putvain of Wolcott. Putvain is studying Software Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science.
Nominees provided a written essay and were invited to participate in an interview process with the faculty review committee. In their deliberations, the committee acknowledged that each of the nominees demonstrated individual excellence in their respective programs. Despite the high level and quality of the nominations, the committee was unanimous in its decisions.
The award-winning students were recognized at the Vermont Society of Professional Engineers event in February. Their ceremony was part of E-Week, the national celebration of engineering professionals and their work.
