Electrical Engineering Scholarships

Engineers create, design and build the things that make our lives easier and more manageable. When they are at the top of their game, the things they create may even make our lives better. As a college major, the field of engineering is as varied as it is challenging. You'll find over 40 varieties of engineering offered at the university level. Hopefully you'll find just as much variety in the engineering scholarships listed below.

While engineering fields cover everything from farms to space there are a few things they have in common. They all rely heavily on math and science. If you're thinking of this as a major you'll need to be strong in both these subjects. In most programs your first two years will be spent on math and science courses along with considerable lab time. In your final two years you'll enroll in the bulk of your core engineering courses.
 
Examples of the most popular engineering fields include mechanical, civil, electrical and computer engineering. Some of the newer kids on the block include robotics and nanotechnology. Other varieties include software, nuclear, mining and architectural engineering.

The employment prospects for many of these fields are quite robust for the coming decade. In addition, engineers have some of the highest earning potential of college graduates at both the bachelor and graduate levels. But be prepared for a lot of difficult academic work. As an engineering major you're going to have to spend more time in the lab and at the books than your friends studying social work or English literature. Less than 40% of engineering students finish their bachelor degree studies in four years. Make sure that you can count patience and fortitude among the attributes you're bringing to the college experience.

You'll also want to explore your desired programs with extreme care. Make sure that this is the program for you. Ask lots of questions. Is the program more theoretical or practical? Is it didactic or hands-on? Is there a senior thesis or Capstone project as a degree requirement? If so, what sort of projects have students submitted in recent  years? You'll also want to be certain that the program in question is accredited by ABET, the leading engineering accreditation board.

If you want to continue your education after your bachelor's you'll have plenty of options. Graduate level engineering programs spend more time on the research end of things. But there's still plenty of scope for hands-on problem solving in emerging and exciting areas such as pharmaceutical, wireless or hydrosystem engineering.

AT&T Labs Research Program

Each summer, research interns from universities all over the US come to AT&T Labs Research for 10 weeks to work with technical staff members on research projects, presenting talks of their work at the end of summer. Learn about one intern's summer experience in Inside the Labs: A Summer Intern Making A Difference. Applicants for summer internship may be members of an existing university collaboration or may apply as individuals. Candidates are typically graduate students but advanced undergraduates will also be considered in exceptional cases. All other applicants or anyone interested in learning more about other internships with AT&T, visit the AT&T corporate employment pages (www.att.jobs). Housing can be arranged for students at nearby universities according to the universities’ summer schedules (typically first week of June to mid August). Students may also arrange their own accommodations, usually by renting a room in a local home. (Opportunities for short-term apartment rentals may be limited.) Summer interns pay for their own housing; however, AT&T Labs covers the costs for travel within the United States Internship eligibility qualifications: Currently enrolled, or planning to enroll, in a graduate school program leading to a PhD. Major field must be in computer science, math, statistics, electrical engineering, operations research, systems engineering, industrial engineering, or related fields. Students must have a US social security number. US citizenship or residency is NOT a requirement.
