Student Opportunity Fund
The UK College of Engineering prides itself on offering students involved in engineering-related extracurricular activities opportunities to travel nationally and internationally for conferences, competitions and research projects. The Student Opportunity Fun enables the College to supply students with such funds. As a result, our students often graduate with educational experiences beyond the classroom that prepare them for industry challenges in the United States and abroad.
