Herff College of Engineering Completion Scholarships

12-14-2018 @11:15am,

The Herff College of Engineering wants to announce the availability of scholarships in financial need that are designed to help students graduate. The scholarships are designed to support students who have demonstrated the ability to be successful in college and are making progress toward a degree but need additional financial resources to complete their degree. To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must be within 45 hours of graduation, demonstrate financial need as determined on the FASFA, be registered as a full-time student and maintain a 2.8 or above GPA.

If you are interested in this scholarship, send an email to Dr Deaton (Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Administration) at expressing your interest by December 20, 2018. I know this is short notice but we want to make some awards in the Spring. In that email, if you can include your FAFSA information, it would expedite the process. Also, estimate your financial need for the Spring.

Senior Project Equipment

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
