Hello from the Citadel School of Engineering! We hope you enjoy reading about the exciting activities and incredible accomplishments that are happening within our engineering programs each and every year. Our students and faculty are involved in extraordinary service projects such as the Battery 2 Beach 31 mile bike path, First Robotics, and many other STEM K-16 activities. They are being nationally recognized for their work through awards such as Rookie honors while placing 9th in their first ever entry into the autonomous vehicle competition, the Richard J. Scranton service award which recognizes the top club in student service, first place in the regional ethics competition, the Robert Ridgeway award which recognizes the number one civil engineering student club within the US and 8 countries, the LeTellier award for lifetime service to the profession, and faculty advisors of the year. Our students and faculty are involved in many more activities, so please read on for more details.
We plan to update our newsletter each quarter. Please save the website as a favourite or register for quarterly email reminders that will include a link to the newsletter. We also will use the email registry when we have exciting news that just cannot wait - such as the recent announcement of our selection as the Robert Ridgeway awardee as the top student club out of 281 clubs and 25,000 students in May 2012! The official presentation of the award will occur on 14 Sept 2012 with the ASCE President presenting the award to the CE students.
Col Thomas Dion, who won the LeTellier award in 2011, will be retiring within the next couple of years and a number of his previous students want to establish some type of endowment in honor of him. So please look for a mailing NLT early January and be generous with your support to this well-deserved honor for your Col D.
If you happen to be in the Charleston Area on 29 Sept for the homecoming football game, do not forget about the Engineering Alumni BBQ at noon behind Grimsley Hall. The food is available until it runs out! See you there!
If you have suggestions, please pass them along to me! If you are in the Charleston area, come visit your School of Engineering and see first-hand what our tremendous students and faculty are doing. After reading about all we are accomplishing, please consider assisting us in growing our programs, numbers of engineering students, and student development opportunities by providing support thru internships, scholarships, and gifts to the School of Engineering.
Highest regards from The Citadel,
