Message From the Dean

As we head into a new year filled with uncertainty, we have reason to hope. True to the Coulter School’s founding ideal, our Golden Knights are rising to today’s challenges and devising technological solutions that will better humanity. Whether that be by commercializing ultrasonic devices that assure quality in pharmaceutical manufacturing, monitoring and analyzing global misinformation or simply excelling in engineering competitions, engineering students and faculty are creating bright futures for all of us. I hope you enjoy reading about their stories and wish you and yours a healthy and happy New Year.
