Tam Vu, a junior in electrical and computer engineering, has received the 2014 LyondellBasell Scholarship.
â€śTam is one of the top students in the ECE class of 2016 and is well deserving of this award,â€ť said faculty advisor Dr. Joseph Cavallaro.
A Lovett College resident, Vu is on the Presidentâ€™s Honor Roll and over the summer conducted research in neuroengineering with Dr. Caleb Kemere. Vu advises new students to pursue their interests.
â€śTry a bunch of new classes and discover what you want to do,â€ť he said. â€śWhen I came in I didnâ€™t expect that I would do electrical engineering, but I took an intro class and found out that I really liked it. I took ELEC 241 with Dr. Johnson and I realized that I enjoyed that class more than all my others.â€ť
Vu will receive $2,500 from LyondellBasell to apply to his studies. He plans to pursue a career in industry upon graduating in 2016.
