About The Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering

Wallace H. Coulter

The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation has made a $30-million gift commitment to Clarkson, in support of ongoing excellence in engineering and science programs. This gift, the largest in Clarkson's history, reinforces and broadens Clarkson's most successful learning and research activities.

Clarkson's School of Engineering has been named the Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering in recognition of the late Wallace Coulter's dedication to the University as a trustee and the Foundation's generous support.

It is hard to say what Clarkson has helped me with –– except to say "everything." The community at Clarkson has made me who I am as a person today. I study more than I used to; I have a great group of friends, that I trust unconditionally, and I can easily see my path to a job after I graduate. It is not just about studying itself, though. It's how I study and who I study with. I have a community that is willing to help with any problem.
