Two graduates of the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering were honored at the Georgia Tech College of Engineering Alumni Awards on April 5.

Xiaoping “Peter” Long (ChBE Ph.D.’98) received an Academy of Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award, and Sean Corcoran (ChBE ’95) received a Council of Outstanding Young Engineering Alumni Award.

Long, who studied pulp and paper engineering under Jeff Hsieh at ChBE, now is president of Shanghai, China-based Innovative Material and Devices Inc., which develops, manufactures and sells functional material for the medical fields.

The Academy of Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award honors highly placed executives who are active in engineering or management, industry, academia or government and who have made impressive contributions in their careers. Long was one of 11 honorees this year.

Corcoran is vice president of corporate development at Neustar Inc., a Virginia-based information services and analytics company. He was one of six recipients of the 2014 Council of Outstanding Young Engineering Alumni Award, which recognizes future leaders in their profession. Recipients are on the “fast track,” have advanced rapidly within their organizations and have distinguished themselves through professional practice and/or service to Georgia Tech, the profession or society at large.

“I am honored to receive this award and privileged to be recognized alongside so many impressive professionals,” Corcoran said. “My education at the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, along with the continued support from the entire Georgia Tech community, has been a key component of my professional development and success.”

Each year, the College of Engineering induction ceremony recognizes alumni who have contributed to the profession, advanced in their careers and enhanced others’ personal and professional lives. These alumni are reviewed by committees within each of the eight College of Engineering schools and formally submitted for selection.
