UI College Of Engineering Names Accenture Scholarship Winner

Deborah Lotz of Bettendorf, Iowa, a senior in the University of Iowa College of Engineering, has been named the winner of a $1,000 Accenture scholarship for the 2004-2005 academic year.

Accenture Scholarships are provided to the College of Engineering by Accenture, Inc., Chicago, Ill. Accenture, a long-time corporate partner of the College of Engineering, is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, with net revenues of $11.82 billion.

One of 11 colleges on the University of Iowa campus, the College of Engineering has educational courses that date back more than a century. It teaches disciplines in biomedical, chemical and biochemical, civil and environmental, electrical and computer, industrial, and mechanical engineering. The college is recognized for its small, personalized size, and focused mission. Its location on a strong liberal arts campus -- with natural strengths in writing and communications, health sciences, business, law, and arts and humanities -- provides highly complementary resources to build the type of broad technological education demanded in a rapidly changing world. The college excels internationally in several specialty and interdisciplinary research areas, such as computer-aided design and simulation, human factors, environmental health solutions, biotechnology, medical imaging, hydraulics and water/air resources, and polymerization.
