The School of Engineering and the Engineering Alumni Board at SCU are proud to announce an upcoming event, Engineering Achievement Awards 2005, to be held on June 8, 2005 in Mayer Theatre, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. This event consists of presentations of various awards to individuals affiliated with the School of Engineering in the past and/or present, who through their contributions to the School and the professions, have distinguished themselves in their individual achievements as well as made a difference in the lives of others. We are fortunate to have Dr. T.J. Rodgers, Chief Executive Officer of Cypress Semiconductor, as this event’s keynote speaker. A well-known leader in the integrated circuit industry, he will speak on “Silicon Valley Attacking New Problems: Renewable Energy.” An outdoor reception will immediately follow. The event is free of charge and open to the public. Updates on this event can be viewed at:

Graduate Services Update

Beginning this year, the School of Engineering’s graduate program has significantly been enhanced through the hiring of new faculty, strengthening the curriculum, and revamping the graduate website: In addition, a new “Visit US Program” is now being offered to attract prospective graduate students to SCU.

On-Campus Information Sessions: On-campus information sessions on Engineering Graduate Programs will be held on Wednesdays during the Spring 2005 Quarter. During the 45-minute program, an admissions representative will provide a detailed overview of the school's distinctive features, discuss the degree and non-degree programs, and offer tips on admissions procedures. After the presentations, there will be a question and answer period.

Off-Campus/Company Information Sessions (To be arranged): If you can gather a minimum of five prospective students from your company who are interested in Engineering Graduate degree and non-degree programs (e.g. M.S., Ph.D., Certificates, and Open University), we will offer an information session at a time and location that is most convenient for you.

School of Engineering Tours: This tour will allow prospective students and new students who are beginning their studies in the Fall to see the School's state-of-the-art facilities, labs, and classrooms. The tour will include the Robotic Systems Lab, the Nanoelectronics Lab (Clean Room), the Machine Shops, and, also, the Design Center.
