Maryland alumnus William J. Coyle established the Coyle Endowed Scholarship in March 2016 to provide need-based scholarships for undergraduate engineering students. William J. Coyle earned his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 2000.
I am a Maryland native, and became a proud Terp in 1995 after graduating from Westminster High School in Westminster, Maryland. I studied Chemical Engineering and was a member of the University Honors Program and Tau Beta Pi. I loved my time in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, and I am particularly grateful for the experience I gained as a co-op / intern at FMC Corporation in Baltimore and Exxon Company USA in Houston. My passion for the co-op program led me to work as a peer advisor in the Engineering Co-op & Career Services office.
After graduating in 2000, my career took a turn away from engineering and towards business: I became a sales engineer for Honeywell and then, via acquisition, BASF. While pursuing my MBA part-time at Northwestern University, I joined ZS Associates, a global leader in Sales & Marketing consulting. The educational foundation and work experience I gained at Maryland prepared me well for my graduate education and my career in consulting. Today, as a Principal at ZS, I am constantly reminded of the enthusiasm and value new university graduates bring to our firm. Recruiting and working with such talented graduates reminds me of how important my time at Maryland was.
While at Maryland, I was lucky enough to earn a number of scholarships that helped me avoid graduating with significant debt. Because Maryland is such an important part of my life, and the generosity of past donors benefited me, I am honored to pay it forward to the next generation of Maryland Engineers. Go Terps!
