Engineering Design Faculty at Penn College Establish Scholarship


Engineering design faculty members at Pennsylvania College of Technology have established a scholarship for students enrolled in computer aided design majors at the college.

The Computer Aided Drafting and Design Scholarship will benefit first-year students who:

  • Are enrolled in engineering design technology (Bachelor of Science) or engineering CAD technology (Associate of Applied Science)
  • Have participated in the Penn College NOW program while in high school
  • Are ranked in the top 40 percent of their high school graduating class

The scholarship will begin making annual awards in 2013-14 while building to be endowed.

“We’re very grateful to the faculty in the engineering design program for establishing this scholarship,” said Robb Dietrich, executive director of the Penn College Foundation. “It is another example of the faculty and staff at Penn College stepping forward to help students pursue a degree that works.”

“We are excited to have in place an avenue by which faculty, alumni and industry could contribute to the academic success of our students,” said Katherine A. Walker, assistant professor of drafting and computer aided design. “To the recipients, I am pleased this scholarship will offer financial assistance and motivation to strive for excellence in their CAD drafting and design studies.”
