Engineering & Engineering

As a few of you have probably learned, TU has a decent-sized and passable engineering college…. Okay, so TU is pretty well known for its intense and competitive College of Engineering and Natural Sciences! And as a student studying in this discipline, I get to see all the in’s and out’s of the classes, professors and buildings. If you visit TU (especially if you are wanting to do anything that is remotely close to engineering), you will probably be shown the two newest additions to the campus: Stephenson Hall and Rayzor Hall. Let me give you some information on both.

First is my home: Stephenson Hall! Alright, so maybe it’s not my home yet. But it will be starting the fall semester. The building is actually scheduled to be open this summer. So just in time for any of you high school seniors! This building will be the home of Mechanical and Petroleum Engineering.

Stephenson Hall: Under Construction!

Next is the beautiful Rayzor Hall. This building opened toward the end of last semester, meaning that I am a part of the first group of students to have classes there. Rayzor is now home to the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. It’s so fancy!

This next photo is to show you a more inside view of Rayzor. Look how much people love studying here!

So as you can see, TU loves to give its students the best of the best when it comes to resources to succeed.

SENEA: Sustainable Engineering for Needy and Emerging Areas

23 days into 2012, and TU students have already changed lives….
Read this great project report about two TU undergraduate mechanical engineering students who traveled to Guyana, South America a few weeks ago to establish solar powered water chlorination systems in three different villages. This project began in May 2010 and the research and development was performed by students at the undergraduate level.

I can’t wait to read the reviews next year, when the students return to expand this year’s project.

Tuesday with Tulsa

Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa blog post is by Weston K., a sophomore from Pennsylvania who won the Tom Russell scholarship in Chemical Engineering ( which is awarded to the top freshman in the program each year).

I was Weston’s admission counselor two years ago and I remember he applied to a lot of colleges before deciding on TU. I asked him if he would be interested in writing a post about how he made the decision to attend a university over 1,000 miles away from home. Here’s his post…

Why would you go to school in Oklahoma?! I heard this question over and over when I made my college decision, during my graduation party, and even every once in a while here at TU. My name is Weston K. and I am a sophomore Chemical Engineering major from Northwest Pennsylvania. Here are a few reasons why I made the decision to come to TU and why I haven’t looked back since.
