Alumnus Dwight Hutchins announced two significant gifts to the college that will impact both electrical engineering and computer science and nuclear engineering.
The college’s Office of Engineering Diversity Programs collaborated with the Her Majesty Design firm and the Earth’s Core rock and bead retailer for bead-making activities that introduce women in high school and college students to the creative, interdisciplinary, and helping aspects of engineering.
“Engineering is a wonderful profession, allowing its practitioners to have tremendous impact on our families, communities, state, nation and global society,” said Dean. “This also places a significant dependency on engineers to get it right. This is a burden engineers must embrace, be humbled by their responsibilities and potential, and enjoy every minute.”
This residential program is a collaboration between the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and the Tickle College of Engineering to provide academic seminars in mathematics and chemistry with lab, in addition to College Life workshops and STEM-related site visits.
