From the (Stand-in) Editor
While our regular editor is fly fishing in the sun-soaked tropics, I am delighted to serve as the Momentum stand-in. A month ago, I joined the College of Engineering to help build its communications and marketing efforts and facilitate its goal of becoming a top-25 college. Already I have noticed the dynamism among the people and programs here. Faculty, students, and research associates alike build, re-tool, and re-imagine. They transform the smallest spark of an idea into inventions that change the way we live and work. In short, the college brims with Momentum.
I am excited to share the July issue of this appropriately titled online magazine, where you will see ample evidence of our momentum. It's this same momentum that propelled a group of eager students to cross the finish line and win the SAE formula racecar championship—not once, but twice. It's the same momentum inherent in the students who built a next-generation Mars rover and placed third at an international competition. Our faculty, too, add to our momentum with their research that solves some of our most pressing problems, including turning environmentally un-sound waste heat into usable, clean energy. And of course, our alumni exhibit momentum with their sustained commitment to ensuring our facilities and learning spaces stay on the cutting edge.
Like me, you'll discover it doesn't take long to feel the momentum at the College of Engineering. I hope you'll join us on our journey toward continued excellence.
