At every level, the School of Engineering seeks to prepare students across six departments to be ethical and service-focused critical thinkers, drivers of innovative engineering, and future leaders.
The school, which began as a University program in 1896, has ambitious goals for the Campaign. Not only does it seek to renovate and revitalize its home in Pangborn Hall, leadership also aims to add three endowed professors who will help with a program that is attracting a growing student body. The school also intends to expand academic offerings through new degree and certificate programs, as well as to secure funds to offer four endowed graduate research fellowships and more student scholarships.
Progress has already been made toward this latter goal. Thanks to a generous $1.1 million bequest from the Joseph A. Clark Trust, a new endowment will provide scholarships to students within the School of Engineering.
“The school has seen a lot of enrollment growth in the last decade, in particular at the undergraduate level,” said Dean John Judge, who has been with the University since 2004. “The challenge we have going forward is to maintain the ‘small school’ feel and the amount of personal attention students get.”
The School of Engineering cultivates minds that are motivated to place analytical and technical knowledge at the service of others, and create engineering solutions to problems and new ways of thinking for the common good.
