A Message from the Dean

Engineering is key to solving some of our most difficult societal problems and to developing innovations that will transform society in the years to come.  Our faculty and students are engaged in both disciplinary and interdisciplinary research that will have lasting impacts. Engineering has relevance to the arts, medicine, social sciences, natural sciences, business and education, and these disciplines have relevance to engineering; hence, as dean, one of my goals will be to help find these connections and foster collaborations that will lead to innovative research and educational initiatives. I hope to lead the Hajim School to increased prominence in research and education, to develop interdisciplinary collaborations across the University of Rochester and beyond, and to cultivate in our current and future students the passion to change the world.
