Stevens Offers New Science Scholarship
The School of Systems and Enterprises at Stevens Institute of Technology is establishing a scholarship honoring systems engineering scholars Wolter Fabrycky and Benjamin Blanchard. The annual award will be given to an SSE doctoral student who “exemplifies leadership and research excellence in systems engineering” and will be based on both academic performance and the recommendations of SSE research faculty.
Fabrycky is chairman of Academic Applications International Inc., based in Blacksburg, Virginia, and professor emeritus of industrial and systems engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. He also is co-author of six Prentice Hall books and co-edits the Prentice Hall International Series in industrial and systems engineering that now contains more than 40 titles.
Blanchard is professor emeritus of industrial and systems engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and has been an active consultant in over 30 different countries in the fields of systems, reliability and maintainability, logistics and lifecycle cost.
In addition to the annual scholarship towards their study at SSE, the doctoral student will also receive recognition at the biannual SSE Research Day Event, special recognition at the annual Provost’s Graduation Banquet and identification on a commemorative master plaque bearing the names of past and current winners.
