Several more offers are outstanding. We hope to have at least five more join in Fall 2011. This will give us over 120 faculty in ECS; a 30% increase in faculty in the past 3 years.


Status of Mechanical Engineering

M.E. faces serious challenges in 4 areas:

Enrollment pressure

Faculty hiring

Research space

Approval for the PhD program


Status of Bioengineering

  • Bioengineering currently has 4 full-time faculty

  • The BS program in Biomedical Engineering will begin in Fall, 2011 with 20-50 students.

  • The MS and PhD programs and faculty research are going well. We hope to recruit several more faculty over the next year.


  • Steve Yurkovich is on board

  • Certificate and MS Degree programs are in full swing.
