Message from Dean Manos Maragakis
Congratulations to the students, faculty and staff of the College of Engineering. It has been my great honor to serve as dean for the past 14 years, and to see this college produce so many talented, successful engineers. As I step down from my role as dean, it is a bittersweet pleasure to present the outstanding members of our college for a final time.
Engineering improves our lives, individually and as a community. Today’s students will shape the future, designing the engineering solutions and technologies that can make our communities safer, healthier and more prosperous. Students understand this. It is reflected in their dedication to their studies: a commitment that is especially impressive as they contended with the recent challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. And now, as the spring 2022 semester nears its end, we celebrate that hard work and those achievements.
In the College of Engineering, we train engineers to make a world of difference every day. Our faculty and staff live this mission. In large part, they are the reason for the success of our college. From teaching to research to K-12 outreach as well as student and faculty support services, everyone in the college plays a role in its success. This spring, our college was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best engineering schools for graduate engineering programs, one of many indicators of our good standing.
Congratulations students, faculty and staff on your accomplishments this past year. You have earned these awards and recognitions, and you are a credit to the College of Engineering.
