At the College of Engineering, we always try to focus on the "Now" while keeping pace with the "Next Generation." Doing so helps us deliver a top-notch program and also plan for what is ahead.
For example, right now we are proud to report that 795 engineering students graduated in the class of 2011. These students will one day fuel prosperity in Oregon and the world as they develop into capable practitioners and visionaries. Also right now, we have faculty and students who are researching living systems—from bats to diatoms—to gain insights into our built and engineered systems. Investments in education and innovation such as these will pay dividends that benefit the next generation.
Our focus on the future comes through in our outreach efforts, including Outside the Box and SESEY, two precollege programs that teach engineering and science to tomorrow's leaders. And many of our breakthroughs today, such as creating solar devices with an inkjet printing process, have a strong promise in changing industries in the up-and-coming.
I hope you enjoy reading about our people and programs and the many ways they are improving the "Now" and the "Next Generation."
