  • Dean's Message, Fall 2021

    Every fall there is always an excitement around campus as students anticipate going back to school after a summer away from their friends, organizations, and studies.

  • A Community of Connection and Guidance

    Bronco engineering undergraduates now have even more opportunities to seek advice, guidance, and insight throughout their entire college experience thanks to the School of Engineering’s Mentor Collective Program that began last year. Knowing mentoring relationships are difficult to establish, the School of Engineering is partnering with the Mentor Collective organization to develop a successful mentorship program. The Mentor Collective organization has worked with universities nationwide on programs that prove fulfilling for both mentors and mentees alike.
