Leadership through Technology Scholarship Award
The CERTON Leadership through Technology Award was established in 2012 and continues to grow each year. This scholarship targets students who showed leadership qualities along with a technical aptitude. CERTON works with local schools to bring this real world hands-on engineering leadership experience to all scholarship participants.
Students who met the mandated criteria participated in a day long onsite experience and worked directly with several CERTON engineers, project managers, and other leadership staff members. These students participated in problem-solving tasks and completed the day with team presentations and one-on-one interviews with CERTON engineers to recap their experience with DO-178 software and DO-254 hardware.
