Each year, the Affiliate Societies Council of Dayton recognizes outstanding engineers and scientists in the Miami Valley as part of the activities of Engineers and Scientists Week. These engineers and scientists are honored for important contributions to their professions at the Annual Awards Banquet. The Awards Committee receives nominations from Miami Valley companies, educational institutions, professional societies and individuals. Selections are made by the Awards Committee in cooperation with the member societies.

The 57th Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony will be held in the Meyer Room at the University of Dayton's River Campus, 1700 Patterson Blvd. (map) on Thursday, April 21, 2016. The 2015 ASC Awardees are listed at the right. Click here for the 2015 Awards Program booklet.
