College of Engineering

Preparing students to become future leaders in engineering fields has never been more important. When the world faced, and continues to face, the novel coronavirus, the members of the College of Engineering harnessed their skills and resources to do their part to overcome the problems presented by COVID-19. Using 3D printers, they produced personal protective equipment for distribution to medical personnel in local hospitals and medical facilities; they began work on more efficient tests for the virus; they adapted drones to disinfect hospital rooms and public spaces; and they began working on novel AI-based smart sensors to detect COVID-19 symptoms via telehealth conferences.

The opening of the new William N. Pennington Engineering Building will better enable the College to support our students and faculty in service of our community. Increased capacity and state-of-the-art facilities will help us recruit and retain world-class students and faculty who can develop engineering solutions to help address the continuing challenges we face. We ask you to support us in these efforts by making a gift to the college.

We are proud of the achievements from the College of Engineering, and we hope that you will support the College or specific Department to ensure our students and faculty continue to have the ability to embrace opportunities to pursue life-changing innovations.
