Clarke and Sanders Named Distinguished Engineering Alumni


April 2004

Six alumni and a former fund-raiser for the University of Colorado Boulder's College of Engineering and Applied Science were honored with the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award at the 39th annual Engineering Awards Banquet on April 16, 2004. The awards recognize alumni and special friends of the college who have distinguished themselves through outstanding personal qualities, knowledge, and significant contributions to their field.

Dean Robert Davis presented the 2004 awards in the categories of education, government service, industry and commerce, research and invention, and special, a category honoring non-alumni who have provided outstanding service to the college. The recipients were nominated by their colleagues and selected for the awards by the Engineering Advisory Council.

Two of this year's awards went to Computer Science alumni Lori Clarke and Lucinda (Lucy) Sanders:

Lori A. Clarke, professor of computer science at the University of Massachusetts, was recognized in the research and invention category for her work on improving software quality through testing and analysis. Clarke has been recognized by the Association for Computing Machinery, which elected her Fellow in 1998, and by the University of Massachusetts, which awarded her its Chancellor's Distinguished Faculty Award in 1991 and Faculty Fellowship Award in 1993. Clarke earned her PhD in computer science at CU-Boulder in 1976.
