According to ELC, students must demonstrate “exceptional leadership ability, or potential, exemplary character and endeavor to foster the spirit of unity among leaders and pride in the engineering profession” in order to receive this highly prestigious honor. According to the ELC website, the selection process begins ”at the end of each fall and spring semester” in which “emerging leaders are encouraged to submit an application for membership.”

ELC, also known as the Engineering Leadership circle, is a leadership honorary recognizing on the top 0.5% of leaders in the College of Engineering. Founded in 1971 at the University of Florida, ELC has continued to serve as the link among prominent leaders from all disciplines in the College.
