All of the faculty members in the School of Engineering have one top priority, their students. In every Engineering classroom, lab and office, you will find these experts working to teach, mentor, collaborate, and to do research with students. This hands-on approach has proven successful in providing opportunities for students to do research and work alongside their educators and mentors. Here are a few that teach in both our undergraduate and graduate programs.
