-Florida Tech senior and ocean engineering major, Adam Outlaw, was selected as this year’s recipient of the Marine Technology Society Charles H. Bussmann
Undergraduate Scholarship. The $2,000 scholarship will apply to his 2005-2006 tuition. Outlaw, past president of the student chapter of the Marine
Technology Society, maintains an outstanding grade point average. From Mobile, Ala., he graduated from Alabama School of Mathematics and Science in 2002.
Outlaw is currently at work on a College of Engineering graduation requirement project, a remotely operated surf-zone surveyer (ROSS). After graduation, he
plans to remain at Florida Tech to begin a master’s degree program.
“At Florida Tech, I enjoy working closely with the professors. It’s amazing how much time they are willing to spend with you on an individual basis,” said
A key part of the mission of the Marine Technology Society is to disseminate marine science and technical knowledge, and to promote and support education
for marine scientists, engineers and teachers.
The Department of Marine and Environmental Systems integrates the expertise and skills of scientists,
engineers, and resource managers. DMES offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in oceanography, environmental science, ocean engineering and meteorology.
