From undergraduate research to Capstone Senior Design to the opportunities offered through student competition teams, VIP, Create X, and maker spaces, our students learn how tackle problems head on, even under the most challenging of circumstances. We are grateful to our alumni and friends for their continued support of the School and its mission to develop the engineers and technologies that will change the world.”
