The Utah Engineers Council is an organization of engineering societies in the state that provide a place where they can work together to promote engineering in the state. The Engineering Educator of the Year award goes to one person in Utah who has been outstanding in furthering engineering education. Member societies that make up the council nominate those eligible for the award.
