Colorado State University

Dr. Elmar Reiter Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Elmar R. Reiter, professor emeritus, Colorado State University, was one of the founding fathers of the Department of Atmospheric Science in the College of Engineering. He had a great passion for research and applied physics. He pioneered many groundbreaking approaches to modeling, including a capability that could predict energy consumption based on use patterns and weather forecasts, which laid the foundation for the use of advanced artificial intelligence neural network capabilities in practical applications. In addition, he was an advocate of cross-disciplinary collaborative research. Dr. Reiter sponsored many foreign students and professors in participating in leading-edge research in meteorology. After retiring from CSU, as professor emeritus, he went on to become an entrepreneur. He founded Wels, which was a company that invented a portable weather prediction system that could run on a PC. It employed new computer science techniques that integrated advanced object-oriented programming with artificial intelligence. The Dr. Elmar R. Reiter Memorial Scholarship is for graduate students, in engineering and atmospheric science, who have a passion for going outside the conventional norms in order to advance science and its practical applications.
