School of Engineering
Engineering with a Mission.
Whether it’s bringing solar-powered lights to classrooms in Ghana, treating post-traumatic stress disorder with virtual reality, delivering life-saving medicines to rural hospitals via drone, or designing houses that create more energy than they consume: most of the solutions that change the world come from engineers, and some of the best engineers in the world come from right here.
Arts and Sciences Collaborates with Engineering in Nanomaterial Research
Nanomaterials represent a whole new world of possibility across a range of scientific studies, including medicine and engineering. But how exactly do these tiny particles, whether natural or man-made, interact with their environment?
Congratulations to Mariah Manzano '20 (web design and engineering), Taylor Mau '18 (electrical engineering, computer engineering), Michael Mehta '19 (mechanical engineering), and Connor Tisch '19 (mechanical engineering), who have completed training to join the University Innovation Fellows (UIF), a global program empowering student leaders to increase campus engagement with innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity and design thinking.
Taylor Yamane Crowned Miss Santa Clara
On January 13, Taylor Yamane '20 (mechanical engineering) was awarded the title of Miss Santa Clara 2018 as a preliminary winner in the Miss America organization. She competed amongst five other girls, all of whom received scholarship prizes at the end of the night. Through the Miss Santa Clara Organization, Taylor promotes her platform of "Full S.T.E.A.M Ahead!" which advocates for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.
