Each year, the Southern Nevada Mechanical Engineering Achievement Award is presented to a company, organization, or individual who has contributed to the advancement of the mechanical engineering profession in Southern Nevada.This year we recognize Dr. Robert Boehm for his long-term research and focus on solar energy which has culminated in UNLV being recognized as one of five regional DOE solar test centers.

Dr. Boehm will also be our keynote speaker discussing UNLV’s Center for Energy Research, their recent NSF grant and DOE recognition as a Regional Test Center.

To round out this solar focused program, we will also receive an update from the UNLV Solar Decathlon team, which is one of 20international Universities selected to compete in this year’s DOE event to design and build a net-zero energy solar-powered house.

Dinner will start with a Caesar Salad and feature great entrees to choose from: Pasta Marinara, Teriyaki Chicken & Tempura Shrimp Combo and Brewer’s Chicken. Make your selection upon arrival. A double chocolate fudge cake with creme anglaise will be served for dessert.
