The Alfred Noble Prize is an award presented by the combined engineering societies of the United States, given each year to a person not over thirty-five for a paper published in one of the journals of the participating societies.

The prize was established in 1895 and in 1901 first noble prize is awarded in honor of Alfred Noble, past president of the American Society of Civil Engineers. There have been several notable winners of this prize including Claude E. Shannon.

It has no connection to the Nobel Prize established by Alfred Nobel, with which this award is often confused due to the similarity of the names.
