Anderson, Ind. -- On Dec. 2, 2017, Anderson University’s School of Science and Engineering hosted hundreds of K-12 students and their coaches and families in the Kardatzke Wellness Center for the third annual Raven-VEX Robotics competition. Eighty AU faculty, staff, students, and close friends served as volunteer referees, emcees, and provided other assistance throughout the day.
Anderson University’s School of Science and Engineering welcomed two new professors to their faculty at the start of the fall semester. Dr. Willis Troy and Dr. Kyung Shin Kang have been crucial additions to the faculty, and will continue to serve in helping the School of Science and Engineering achieve their present and future goals.
On Oct. 31, Anderson University will open the new Cybersecurity Engineering Laboratory in the AU Engineering Center. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception will take place from 9-10 a.m. and guests can park in the Hartung or Discovery Day parking lots.
We hope you will join us on the Anderson University campus Oct. 13-14 for our Homecoming 2017 celebration! As we conclude our Centennial year, the weekend will be filled with our traditional Homecoming events, as well as a few specific Centennial activities. Family Weekend will also take place during this special time on campus!
Anderson University has always attempted to stay on the cutting edge of technology for the sake of its students. When computers became more mainstream, AU was one of the first colleges to obtain one for student and faculty use. When the Internet became more than just an abstract idea, AU ensured that students could access it not just in the classroom but in their dorms as well.
Anderson University recently received a record number of student scholarships from the Indiana Space Grant Consortium (INSGC). A total of 11 student scholarships were awarded for the 2017-18 school year, the highest in the state of Indiana for all universities/colleges.
The following students received these scholarships:
The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr., former attorney general for the United States, will be speaking at Anderson University on Sept. 19 for the observation of Constitution Day.

A media session will follow at 2:45 p.m.
Beginning in Fall 2017, Anderson University will introduce new programs, as well as significant updates to existing programs. The new programs include majors in engineering physics, worship arts, and a B.S. in computer science and minors in social work and sport and recreational leadership.
The new programs are being offered following a review of internal programs and capacity, as well as a scan of the marketplace and job opportunities for students.
