The James G. Lacy Award was set up in honour of UCD Professor Emeritus Jim Lacy, through a donation by Liam Madden to the UCD Foundation. The award is not specific to students in Electronic & Electrical Engineering. The value of the award is €1,000, and it will be conferred at the EGA Awards ceremony in September.

The Award is presented to the best Master of Engineering (ME) project that demonstrates excellence in the innovative application of Electrical Engineering principles within the full range of disciplines of Engineering:

Electrical
Electronic
Biomedical
Civil
Chemical
Mechanical
Biosystems
Energy
Computer Engineering

The process for making the award is that ME Programme Coordinators are invited to make not more than two nominations in May each year. A committee chaired by the College Principal decides on the final winning project.
