Brooks Instrument will once again offer an engineering scholarship for undergraduate students enrolled in an engineering program at an accredited college or university.

This project has revealed issues that engineers go through when attempting to design a product,” says last year’s winner Etienne Jackson, a fire protection engineer studying at the University of Maryland, who remembers the successes and difficulties faced when working on the project that won him the scholarship. “When a failing idea is brought up, it is important for the idea to be tested, so that more ideas can be tested until the best one is found.”

The program was introduced in 2018 to reward exceptional students and help them pursue their career. The scholarship offers $2,000 to a candidate who shows potential for leadership and interest in engineering, particularly as it relates to instrumentation, fluid mechanics and flow or pressure measurement.

To apply, students should visit https://www.brooksinstrument.com/en/about-us/scholarship. The application requires a personal essay as well as a project review, proposal, lab work or other endeavours that give a detailed description of a process involving some degree of instrumentation, flow or measurement.

Applications must be received by October 31.

To qualify for the scholarship, the project, research or investigation must incorporate flow, fluid mechanics and/or pressure measurement as an integral part of the process or data recording. The project can also be about the use or development of a novel pressure or flow measurement method or technique.

In addition, students must upload a copy of their transcript.

Brooks Instrument provides instrumentation for flow, pressure and vapourization, the company serves customers in semiconductor manufacturing, fiber optic and thin film manufacturing, solar cell, LED, alternative energy, oil and gas refining, chemical and petrochemical research, and pharmaceutical and biopharmaceuticals.
