Beta is completing three years of funding $6,000 for scholarships awarded to Northwestern State University students pursuing degrees in engineering technology. The scholarships are awarded to two students each academic year. One is for an entering freshman focused on Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) or Industrial Engineering Technology (IET). The second is for a senior student, also focused on EET or IET.
NSU’s Engineering Technology Programs are aligned with Beta Engineering and other companies who are continually evaluating processes and technologies to ensure they represent current industry best practices. NSU’s ET Department delivers sophisticated education in control technology using digital applications and telecommunications protocols.
“We are extremely grateful to Beta Engineering and Crest Industries for their continued support of NSU’s Engineering Technology Programs,” said Dr. Ali Ahmad, head of the Department of Engineering Technology. “Enrollment continues to increase in our programs which is helping to meet demand for technologists in the equipment, quality control, process control and other applied engineering fields. Our students are not only equipped with applied engineering skills but are also prepared with the soft skills and management abilities required to lead in high performance organizations such as Beta Engineering.”
Beta provides engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for high voltage substations and transmission lines across the United States. Through its staff of electrical and civil engineers, project managers and substation technicians, Beta Engineering has delivered high performance expertise to the design and construction of high voltage power systems since 1975.
