The Stanford University School of Engineering Efficiency Award recognizes cost saving, efficiency or sustainability contributions. Like university-wide awards, our school staff awards are especially meaningful because the nominations come from our colleagues on the faculty and staff. This year’s winners were selected from an extremely competitive group of nominees, and their dedication and enthusiasm for advancing our mission is an inspiration.
