BRADLEY UNIVERSITY/SAE JOHN DEERE AND BRADLEY UNIVERSITY/SAE ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIPS

Bradley is a medium sized, independent, comprehensive university located in Peoria, Illinois - a city serving a region of over 250,000. The University occupies a 75 acre campus and its student population of about 5,000 undergraduates and 1,000 graduate students makes it the ideal size for living and learning. The College of Engineering and Technology is approximately 1,000 students: about 800 undergraduates and 200 graduate students. While some engineering colleges focus on a theoretical education, and others focus on the applied, Bradley's College of Engineering and Technology balances both approaches. The college is located in recently remodeled facilities that include state-of-the-art computers and specialized equipment such as laser doppler velocimeters, significant shock and vibration instrumentation, CNC machine tools, rapid prototyping equipment, and a robotics laboratory.

The process of "learning how to learn" is integral to the Bradley University experience. Student interaction with faculty is a critical part of the educational process at Bradley and faculty mentoring of students is one of the key ingredients. In addition to the frequent interactions with faculty members, students also receive a wealth of practical, hands-on experiences through industry-sponsored senior projects, summer internships, the Cooperative Education Program and our established Practicum Program which pays students to solve real industrial problems on site. Working ties to world-class companies such as Caterpillar Inc., Deere & Company and The Boeing Company give students unparalleled opportunities to use specialty equipment and gain "on-the-job" knowledge many engineering students get only after they have graduated and begin engineering work.

The educational process at Bradley helps to develop many future leaders. Bradley's medium size and comprehensive character allow our students to interact closely with those in other disciplines. This exposure broadens their interests as their technical education prepares them for leadership roles. This may be one reason that more than 740 of our engineering graduates have become vice presidents or presidents of companies. Undergraduate majors include: Civil Engineering, Construction, Electrical Engineering, Electrical Engineering-Computer Option, Engineering Physics, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering.

Its 200-acre wooded campus offers students a dynamic learning environment. Whitworth enrolls approximately 2100 students representing over 30 states and 25 nations. A Whitworth education is characterized by academic excellence, the integration of faith and learning, abundant opportunities to engage in research and service, one of the best study-abroad programs in the nation and thorough preparation for careers with purpose. Today's engineer requires great breadth in educational background. It is no longer enough to have mastery of the technical aspects of engineering. A strong liberal arts background also prepares an engineer to better anticipate, understand and adapt to new and changing conditions, whether they be social, economic, cultural or political, that will affect the development of technology. More and more employers prefer to hire the liberally educated engineer.

Whitworth University offers a Dual Degree Engineering program designed to address the needs of the modern engineer. Students typically study at Worthworth for three years, completing their general education graduation requirements, then complete two years at a partner engineering university. Upon completion of the BS in Engineering from an ABET accredited university, students also receive a BA from Whitworth University. Through our partnerships, students are able to pursue degrees in Aerospace Engineering, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, and Systems Engineering.
