About the Steiner Award

Father Steiner was an 1899 civil engineering graduate of Notre Dame who served as dean of the College of Engineering from 1928 to 1938. He had a tremendous impact on the college and an even greater impact on the lives of his students. In 1948, former students of “Pops” Steiner established this award in his memory. It is presented annually to outstanding seniors.
