Lockheed Martin Awards College of Engineering $100,000
The Roy G. Perry College of Engineering at Prairie View A&M University received a $100,000 donation from global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin.
“The donation will give us the ability to recruit more incoming freshmen to the College of Engineering Institute Summer Bridge program. In addition, we will be able to attract more students by offering scholarships, developing funded senior design projects, and training students with the needed soft skills to effectively function in the professional world,” said Dr. Shield Lin, associate dean of the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering. “Our college offers a broad range of programs and activities that serve to assist in the building of a highly skilled and diverse STEM workforce, and a good number of very qualified engineering and computer science graduates from PVAMU are employed by Lockheed Martin. We will appreciate Lockheed Martin’s partnership with us for years to come.”
