Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering has three important Missions: education, research innovation, and entrepreneurship. The College seeks to serve the region, state and nation as a part of a urban, comprehensive research university. Students are prepared for professional practice, graduate study, lifelong learning, and to lead society. Faculty members develop the scientific and technological base for the engineering profession and disseminate advanced technical knowledge to engineers, other professionals, and the public. A balance among the three missions is sought through a partnership built among students, faculty, staff, alumni, government, and private industry. This can be achieved by maintaining an academic environment that is both intellectually stimulating and supportive of all of its constituents regardless of race, gender, or ethnic background.
