The Fellowship Programs at Harvey Mudd College are a model for undergraduate research experiences that aligns students, faculty and donors around common values.
The engineering program at HMC provides a unique blend of learning experiences that allows students to demonstrate capabilities across a wide range of engineering disciplines. At the heart of the program is professional practice. The Department of Engineering's first fellowship focuses on civil engineering and was begun in 1998 by Robert De Pietro ’69 and his brother, Dennis, to honor their parents, Frank and Frances. The other fellowships include the Mary Jane and Robert Engman Research Fellowship Program (biomedical engineering) and the Jay Wolkin ’99 and Clay Family Foundation Fellowship (electrical engineering), the Patton and Claire Lewis Fellowship in Engineering Professional Practice by board of trustee member Malcolm Lewis ‘67and his wife, Cynthia, to honor Malcolm’s late parents.
