With a Solid Foundation, It’s Incredible What We Can Build
After 50 years of pursuing excellence in engineering, we can afford to pause—but just for a moment—to reflect on our triumphs and struggles. For our community partners, students, and faculty, the College of Engineering has been a beacon of education, opening doors of opportunity and revealing infinite possibilities for a better world. We are proud of our achievements. However, the fields of engineering and education are ever-evolving—and there is still much more to accomplish.
Supporting Global Research Initiatives
As a college, we can best be described as young in spirit. The advantages are evident in our optimism, confidence, and innate drive to aim higher than others think possible. Our tools and technology contribute to space exploration. Create fuel from landfill gases. Save lives in hospitals and operating rooms. Provide safer roads and effective transportation systems. Purify water and deliver it to those in need. Enhance domestic security. Yet, we are capable of even larger feats. So, each day, we work harder—relentlessly and creatively shaping our understanding of mathematics and science for the greater good. And proving again and again that we, as engineers and students, have the will and power to directly and positively impact the world around us.
Supporting Students and Faculty
The success of our students, research, and multidisciplinary solutions is a reflection of both the quality of education we offer and the rate by which we balance change with adherence to our foundational ideals. Through educational leadership, impactful discovery, experiential learning, and community partnerships, our plans for the future—for a new facility—are within reach. A facility that allows intellectual collaborations and collisions to take root and thrive. And that enables the College of Engineering to not only grow in size and strength, but to push the realm of what’s possible in engineering and education.
