Coronavirus (COVID-19)

A letter from the dean:

The outbreak of COVID-19 is an acute crisis that affects everyone. For the College of Engineering, it has changed the way we prepare our students to be leaders and innovators. While it is unusual to consider that education and research are ongoing with a largely vacant campus, we are looking forward to lively discussions and collaborations on digital platforms and are optimistic that learning opportunities will be abundant.

Even though interaction will be from a distance until this health threat subsides, the college's support staff is ready to help you adjust to this change in our educational environment. Academic advisors and faculty members are working together daily to ensure that students' needs are met.

Above all, please be safe and follow the advice of medical experts as we work together to get through this unprecedented situation. The College of Engineering's mission has always been to improve quality of life, and right now the best way we can uphold that mission is by practicing responsible citizenship.
