Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Alfred University represents a special blending of private and public financing. The College of Ceramics, with Schools of Art/Design and Engineering, is one of the statutory units of the State University of New York and, as such, is funded by the State; administratively, however, the College is an integral part of Alfred University. The remainder of the University is privately financed and consists of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Business. The School of Engineering has the largest graduate program in Ceramics in the nation with state-of-the-art research equipment and facilities and is run mainly with private industry and government agency resources. Scholes Library is internationally recognized for the strength of its holdings in science, engineering, and technology; its traditional book and journal collections are supplemented by state-of-the-art access to digital information resources. The library occupies a new four-story building with a wide variety of computer equipment and private study carrels for graduate students.
