Engineering Exploration Day: October 7, 2017
The Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering invites high school students, their parents, and community members to explore engineering majors and careers. The event will be held on CSU’s campus and is free of charge and open to the public.
College Named in Honor of Alumnus
With a $53.3 million gift, the largest in CSU history, the college was renamed the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering in recognition of business icon and CSU alumnus Walter Scott, Jr.
The Walter Scott, Jr. Undergraduate Scholarships are the most prestigious scholarship awards offered by the College. The goal of the scholarships is to recruit and support academically gifted and talented students to pursue undergraduate engineering degrees at CSU. Each year approximately 20 incoming freshman students are selected to receive these renewable scholarships.
Up to 30 incoming graduate students are selected each academic year to receive Walter Scott, Jr. Graduate Fellowships. These awards recognize prior academic accomplishments and research excellence, as well as the potential to enhance the College’s research programs.
Four Presidential Chairs in the College’s Areas of Excellence – Water, Health, Energy, and the Environment – have been established through this gift. The title of Presidential Chair is the highest and most prestigious honor that Colorado State University may award to a faculty member and recognizes sustained excellence in research and scholarly activity.
