By encouraging collaboration across disciplines and tackling the tough engineering problems of our time, the College of Engineering is experiencing explosive growth—not only in funding but in patents, inventions, and the advancement of basic science.

Working side-by-side with faculty and industry, our students are learning how to predict earthquakes, build fuel cells, and save lives through prevention and medicine. Together, we're asking big questions and finding that the answers are changing our perceptions of what's possible.
