Enrollment Growth, New Programs and Accreditation Process Highlight Fall Semester
The past fall semester was a busy one at the Fenn College of Engineering. The hallways and classrooms of Stilwell Hall were noticeably more crowded with a 10% spike in enrollment from the 2009 fall semester. This continues the trend of sustained growth at Fenn, which since 2005 has seen a 25% increase in total enrollment and a 119% increase of new undergraduates.
Engineering Alumni Speaker Series
The fall session of CSU’s Engineering Alumni Speakers Series offered students four separate opportunities to hear and learn from alumni who spoke on projects and experiences from their careers. Topics ranged from GE’s transition from incandescent to LED lighting by Rebecca Bompiedi (BS ‘84, MS ‘92 ) to the design of the Euclid Corridor by Ralph Trepal (BS ‘67) to the electronic design process of line cards at Cisco Wireless by Michael Hawkins (BS ‘99).
Alumni Fill Foxes’ Den to Modify Toys for Children with Disabilities
Engineering alumni came together on November 30th in Stilwell Hall’s Foxes’ Den lounge to adapt electronic toys so they can be used by children with physical disabilities. Hosted by the Engineering Chapter of the CSU Alumni Association and coordinated by the non-profit organization RePlay for Kids, the workshop had over 50 participants - three times more than last year – as many alumni brought their spouses, children, and co-workers to volunteer. All of the toys were modified in record time and given out over the holidays. Thanks are extended to everyone who volunteered.
New Endowments and Grants
Fenn College has been fortunate to receive public and private funding in recent months that will create new scholarships and support faculty research projects. Alumni support increased significantly in the past year, including graduates who endowed engineering scholarships with significant financial commitments. Fenn thanks the following endowment donors:
