Bill Would Mean Larger Engineering School at KU

A bill in the Kansas Legislature would mean a bigger engineering school at the University of Kansas. The legislation is aimed at increasing the number of engineers graduating from Kansas universities by 60 percent. But KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little says they don’t have room for any more students, so the funding would be used to expand the engineering program.

The bill would provide 4 million dollars the first year to Kansas universities, and 7 million dollars per year after that. The schools would have to raise matching dollars to get the state funding. The bill has passed the Senate and is now in the House. Lawmakers could take action on the legislation when they return to Topeka next week.
