College of Engineering

Our Priorities

The college has identified four key priorities which are highlighted below.

  • Expand student support

    Privately funded scholarships enable the college to attract and retain high-performing students.

  • Sustain Excellence

    Generous, ongoing support for the excellence funds within the college and each department allows for a quick response to opportunities that benefit students and faculty, while enhancing the college’s reputation for academic excellence.

  • Enhance Laboratories and Learning Spaces

    Naming opportunities for state-of-the-art laboratory/learning spaces, and equipment. Laboratory/learning spaces will allow our students to experience realistic engineering problems, and practice high-risk solutions in a low-risk environment.

  • Increase Corporate Engagement

    Continue to identify meaningful ways for businesses to engage with the College of Engineering.
