Santa Clara University


Dean's Message

Spring is here, and with it comes the close of our Centennial celebration for the School of Engineering. To mark the occasion, we recently honored 12 luminaries from the past 100 years of Santa Clara Engineering with the Centennial Award. These illustrious individuals have had a tremendous impact on furthering not only the engineering profession, but the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University, as well. They are leaders in community service, professional accomplishment, entrepreneurship, scholarship, philanthropy, social justice, and promotion of excellence in Jesuit teaching, and we are enriched immeasurably by having had them in our midst:  

William J. Adams '37
William N. Carrico '72
William S. Carter '71, '95
Michael L. Hackworth '63
Jack D. Kuehler '54, '86
Jeffrey A. Miller '73, '76
John L. Ocampo '79
Eugene A. Ravizza '50
Dragoslav D. Siljak
George L. Sullivan
William E. Terry '55
Maynard G. Webb  

Spring also brought another reason for celebration here at the School of Engineering as 65 teams of graduating seniors presented their capstone projects to an audience of parents, alumni, industry collaborators, University administrators, and friends at our 42nd Annual Senior Design Conference on May 10. This edition of Engineering News features stories about a number of their projects. I hope you enjoy reading about the excellent work being done by our undergraduates. Who knows? There just may be a future Bicentennial Award recipient found among these pages!
