Recognizing the need for an increase in the number of engineering graduates in Kansas, beginning in 2012 the Legislature provided an annual appropriation of $10.5 M to Kansas State University, the University of Kansas, and Wichita State University to ensure engineering industry partners find the new talent, designs, and techniques needed to fuel economic growth and business success in Kansas. Each university is matching this legislative investment, dollar for dollar, resulting in over $200 M directed towards the education of engineers in Kansas.  Through increased enrollments, better connections for students at critical stages with Kansas companies, and increased opportunities for scholarships and internships, the three universities will increase undergraduate engineering degrees to 1,365 annually by 2021.
