Realizing Tomorrow’s Technologies
Four engineering students won $10,000 and finished second in the Institute of Navigation Robotic Lawn Mower Competition.

Promoting International Good Will
Six graduates are Fulbright Scholarship recipients. The U.S. government's flagship academic exchange program allows individuals to study, teach, and conduct research around the world to increase mutual understanding among Americans and people of other countries.
