UI College Of Engineering Names Stanley Scholarship Winner

Gregory Scott of Glenwood, Ill., a senior mechanical engineering student in the University of Iowa College of Engineering, has been named the winner of a $5,000 Stanley Consultants scholarship for the 2006-2007 academic year.

Since 1913, Stanley Consultants have provided engineering and related services to all 50 states and in 93 countries. Starting in 1939 in Muscatine, Iowa, C. Maxwell Stanley pioneered quality service methods for clients regarding rural electrification, state roads, sanitary systems, and running water. In addition to engineering, Stanley Consultants provide architectural, economical, environmental, and construction services. The member-owned company also belongs to the U.S. Green Building Council, which promotes buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. Stanley Consultants partners with the college by actively recruiting graduates, supporting ethnic inclusion, supplying guest seminars, exchanging information, receiving briefings from the college, contributing to the college's Building Funds, participating in faculty consultation, and by having members on the Advisory Boards for the College of Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and IIHR-Hydroscience and Engineering.

The award is given on the basis of merit.

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.
