Agilent-SSU Partnership Program for BSEE Students
Agilent Technologies and SSU have developed a Partnership program for the "Enhancement of the new Bachelor's Engineering Science Program" at SSU. This unique program has seven components as described below.
Agilent Technologies provides a number of $3000 scholarships to undergraduates in Engineering Science at SSU. Most of these Scholarships are awarded to the new applicants planning to join BSEE program at SSU and a few are awarded to the continuing BSES students. The awards are made for one academic year starting in Fall semesters. The scholarships are awarded in recognition of merit; financial need is not a factor in the selection process.
The continuing students interested in applying for an Agilent Scholarship, must check with the ES Department Office about the application deadline and a Scholarship Application for the Continuing Students
- Agilent Engineers as Mentors to Scholarship Recipients
Each award recipient will have two mentors, one from the Engineering Sciences faculty and the other from Agilent. The role of an Agilent mentor will be to advise the student to prepare for a successful career in the real world.
The students will have internship opportunities at Agilent, mostly in summers, to gain valuable industry experience on state-of-the art technology as well as for financial rewards.
- Lecture Series
The objective of the lecture series is to expose undergraduates to topics and careers in engineering with the intention of helping guide their future course and career choices.
Periodically, experts from Agilent will teach undergraduate courses to bring practical knowledge into the classrooms and interact with the students more closely.
- Field Trip to Agilent Labs
The objective for the field trip is to intensify students' interest in engineering via seeing some great leading-edge projects at Agilent Labs.
