Overview of the Undergraduate and School of Engineering

The policy of the School of Engineering is as follows:


Mankind now possesses the scientific and technological power to effect change on a global scale. Our new-found ability to transmit messages from our own homes to computers around the world means that the physical size of our planet no longer constrains the communication of information. On the other hand, societies today demand massive quantities of energy, whose production and consumption generate such large volumes of carbon dioxide that regional climates are undergoing significant change. Just a few generations ago, we tended to associate science and technology only with those functions that enrich our lives, but it is becoming increasingly evident that many aspects of these disciplines also have political and economic impact. This realization highlights the need for further refinement and more judicious use of science and technology, both now and in the years ahead.
