Revolutionary engineering—a plan for 2025 and beyond
By striving for excellence in education, research and innovation, the College of Engineering has made dramatic strides toward our campus vision of a 21st century public land-grant institution. We continue to be the No. 1 public college of engineering in New England and rank in the top 35 nationally. Looking forward, we aspire to achieve the bold and inclusive goals described in this strategic plan. Our strategies for reaching these goals will guide us in addressing the grand challenges facing engineering, society, and the world.
