Roger Gonzalez, professor of mechanical and biomedical engineering and director of UTEP’s Leadership Engineering Program, was a finalist for the Global Humanitarian Engineer of the Year award. The award was presented at the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference in Silicon Valley, Calif., Oct. 22. Gonzalez was nominated for his work with LIMBS International, which he founded in 2004. The nonprofit develops durable, low cost prosthetics that can be locally fabricated.

The award celebrates the contributions of engineers in improving the lives of those less fortunate as they provide role models and highlight lesser-known roles of engineering in society.
