Conferred by the Maryland Science Center, this award was established in 1988 in order to recognize and encourage the important work of young professional engineers residing in the State of Maryland, and increase public awareness of their accomplishments.

Barman will receive his award at a reception at the Maryland Science Center on November 16.

The Outstanding Young Engineer Award is given in the name of Allan C. Davis, a Baltimore native and 1917 graduate of Johns Hopkins University. A businessman, engineer and inventor, Davis held several patents, served as President of the Academy and Chairman of the Board of Directors, and funded the Maryland Science Center’s Davis Planetarium.
