Undergraduate Engineering Scholars Program
We are seeking outstanding students interested in being mentored in research and scholarship. The Scholarship will provide $6,000 of annual funding to help cover the cost of tuition, room and board. The scholarship is merit based and renewable for an additional three years for a total scholarship of $24,000.
Small Class Sizes and Faculty Interaction
Student and faculty engagement is a hallmark of the college, helping our students reach their full potential to achieve dynamic and rewarding careers. Through small class sizes and a low student to faculty ratio, our students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with renowned faculty and researchers to engineer global solutions.
Engineers have exciting career opportunities. Engineers create robots that learn and save lives; techniques to build the roads and cities of tomorrow; heighten our understanding of ways weather influences how we live; design systems to meet changing environmental needs; find new energy resources and enhance ways to use existing resources; and integrate the myriad of emerging technologies into the tools and toys used in everyday life around the world. UW graduates are sought by leading companies with international impact.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science offers several undergraduate bachelor of science degrees that lead to challenging and rewarding careers:
The Center for Student Services (CSS) in the College of Engineering and Applied Science helps students develop their full potential by creating a culture of success through active involvement in education and career planning.
A variety of student societies provide our students with opportunities to socialize and be involved in the university and greater community. Our students receive free tutoring from the National Engineering Honor Society and the International Engineering Club. And many students participate in Engineers Without Borders, designed to facilitate those interested in study abroad, international internships or international service.
