Mechanical 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.

Francis Huang Memorial Scholarship

College of Engineering - Mechanical & Aerospace Sponsor: Friends of Francis Huang For more information: Call 408-924-3580 Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

RCJudge Scholarship

Basically we found that not a lot of younger people are interested in the remote control toy hobby so we figured that offering a scholarship based on it is a good idea to get the younger crowd interested. Engineers would probably the most qualified to answer this. Were offering 1000$ to the winning student. We're looking for students to research and create an essay (700 to 1000 words) on how the technology for remote control toy's will change as technology itself continues to advance. Some of our basic requirements: -Be U.S Citizen -Have at least a 3.0 GPA -Must currently be enrolled in college You can see the full scholarship page here: http://rcjudge.com/scholarship/ -Mark Biggs
