The materials science and engineering bachelor's degree at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire addresses the world's growing need for skilled engineers. Rooted in experiential learning, students graduate with knowledge of the field and the technology you will use in it. Through a strong curriculum that emphasized communication, analytical skills and intuitive problem-solving, you gained the know-how and experience while you worked alongside students and faculty who were just as curious and passionate as you. You have the opportunity to help the next wave of curious, passionate students by supporting the Materials Science and Engineering Excellence Scholarship.
The Materials Science and Engineering Excellence Scholarship is awarded to a student each year to ensure they will have the ability to attend UW-Eau Claire and get the valuable hands-on experiences the department offers. This scholarship is also an important recruiting tool to make sure we continue to have the best students. Together with other alumni, you can help us reach our goal of $2,000 to ensure Materials Science and Engineering students like Santiago, this year's recipient, have the opportunity to earn their degree at UWEC. Make a difference in the lives of future students today by supporting the Materials Science and Engineering Excellence Scholarship.
Support Our Students
Santiago is our very first recipient of the Materials Science and Engineering Excellence Scholarship. Thanks to the generosity of donors last year, Santiago has made UWEC his home and is hard at work in the program. He has also been fortunate to conduct research with Dr. Liz Glogowski. As a first-generation student, it has been an honor for Santiago to receive this scholarship which has allowed him to focus on schooling instead of how to afford tuition. If you haven't already check out the video above to hear directly from Santiago.
