From the Dean: Summer 2021

While the impact of COVID-19 is not fully known and even as society continues to address ongoing challenges, I am thrilled to share with you that we’re planning for a staged return of activity on the Homewood campus this fall.

While we continue to work through the impacts of COVID-19 on the university—as well as on our lives—a comforting sense of business-as-usual began to take hold as the fall term progressed.

Summer 2020

From the Dean: Summer 2020

Today, as never before, we can see just how critical engineering and engineers are—and will be—to our health, safety, and well-being. I am immensely proud of the way the WSE community has risen to the challenge and is making an impact on the world.

Spring 2019

From the Dean: Spring 2019

As all engineers know, there is always more work to be done. With you, the WSE community, as our partner, the impact we have will be tremendous.

At its core, the Whiting School of Engineering comprises partnerships that extend within and far beyond the boundaries of our campus. Through these partnerships, we advance discovery, create knowledge, and have an impact on the world.

Summer 2018

From the Dean

The pace of change here is almost dizzying. In the last year alone, the Whiting School’s footprint on Homewood campus—and slightly beyond—has increased by 20 percent, allowing us to expand our critical core research facilities and world-class laboratories, and add more space for centers and institutes.

Winter 2018

From the Dean

Finding workable solutions to the complex global challenges we face, from climate change and rising health care costs to our cities’ crumbling infrastructure, requires bringing to bear the collective expertise and points of view of engineers, lawyers, policymakers, ethicists, artists, economists, diplomats, and many others.

Summer 2017

From the Dean

There is no doubt we live in a time of great change. Around the globe, we are seeing major disruptions in politics, economies, industries, and educational institutions.
