The construction engineering technology program prepares engineering technology graduates who are in high demand in the construction industry. Fluor's contribution will allow the department to purchase equipment and instrumentation for instructional labs. These funds will facilitate the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment to prepare Texas Tech students for careers in engineering.
"Fluor is pleased to be able to make this contribution to Texas Tech as one of our partner universities," said Tom Zachman, senior vice president of Fluor Corporation. "We believe such support will enhance the quality of education in the College of Engineering at Texas Tech and at the same time ensure continued growth and sustainability of our most precious resource - our people."
This generous donation by Fluor enables us to continue to increase the quality of student services and programs that we offer, said Jeffrey C. Woldstad, senior associate dean of the College of Engineering. "We are thankful for Fluor's commitment to the preparation of future engineers," he said.
