About the Donor

The late Chin Shung Hsu brought enthusiasm, humor, and great knowledge to the courses he taught, endearing him to his peers as well as his students.  He served on the electrical engineering faculty from 1980 until his death in 2001.  He is survived by his wife Ning, son Albert, and daughter Jessica.

Dr. Hsu came to the United States in 1972 from Taiwan, after receiving his bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering from National Chiao Tung University in 1970 and serving in the Chinese Air Force as an officer of electronics and radar systems.  He earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering at Utah State University, then a Ph.D. from Oregon State University in 1979.  From 1985 through 1988, he served as a consultant and research engineer at the Boeing  Company’s Commercial Airplanes division.

He had a variety of research interests related to control systems and served one summer as a summer research fellow and one year as a visiting scientist  in the Flight Dynamics Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.  He was a leader in the Palouse Asian American Association and a senior member in the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).  He was also named an honorary member of WSU’s Association for Faculty Women.

The income from this fund shall be used to award undergraduate scholarships in electrical engineering for third-year students enrolled in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.  Selection will be determined by established procedures that consider both merit and financial need.  Preference in awarding both new and renewed scholarships will be for students who have at least a 3.2 overall GPA.
