Washkewicz College works constantly to build and strengthen its relationships with industry. Industrial companies are Washkewicz's customers in many ways.
Through outreach, alumni, projects and research, these relationships continue to provide dividends for all. In 2005, Parker Hannifin Corporation donated $4 million to Cleveland State, with $3 million of that dedicated to the founding of a scholarship endowment for Washkewicz College. This endowment will enable the college to offer several comprehensive scholarships.
Our Industry Partners contribute in many ways. In 2004, GrafTech began its patronage of CSU through the sponsorship of one of Washkewicz's engineering summer camps.
Industry partners have supported Washkewicz College through:
- Monetary donations for scholarships, labs and endowed chairs
- Lab equipment
- Sponsored research
- Sponsored student events
- Provision of co-op positions
