About Us

Welcome from the Director
‌Thank you for your interest in the Engineering program. 

As engineers and aspiring engineers, we all share the same mission—to make a positive change in the world by crafting optimum solutions to important problems. The curriculum in the Engineering program will give you valuable theoretical, practical, and hands-on knowledge that will prepare you to immediately make an impact as you begin your career.

The experience I bring to the classroom and the program is wide and varied. I have been a medical device industry executive, as well as a professor. This experience inspired me to build a program that is rooted firmly in engineering theory, meets the needs of industry, and yet offers students a unique opportunity to explore their creativity while solving social justice problems.

If you’re planning to be on campus for a weekday visit, please feel free to stop by. I’d be happy to meet with you if you let me know ahead of time.
