Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Engineering and Architecture!

The College of Engineering and Architecture offers 17 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in architecture, various fields of engineering, and computer science.

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you a booklet reflecting the developments that have taken place from Spring 2016 to Fall 2018. During this period, we built on a strong historical foundation to advance our national standing, in the context of addressing our nation's socio-technological challenges. The university administration, faculty, staff, and college leadership joined forces to embark on a journey of transformation with a clear and distinct objective in mind: student success!

We had the collective leadership, vision, plan, and determination, which led to tremendous successes, including:

  • Increasing 66-points in national ranking
  • Doubling of women faculty, and quadrupling of women assistant professors
  • Quadrupling of Ph.D. graduation rate
  • Strengthening our Architecture program
  • Launching two new programs: Master of Architecture and dual Ph.D. program with CMU
  • Transforming physical, administrative, and fiscal infrastructures

Going forward, we intend to elevate the college to significantly higher levels of national standing and recognition. We invite alumni, friends and corporate partners to join us in this historic effort!

Achille Messac, Ph.D.
