The College of Engineering and Applied Science has a tagline, "We Engineer Better." Our mission is to provide excellence in education and in the creation and transfer of knowledge, and to do these things with an eye toward accessibility to all.
The college seeks to:
- Become a destination of choice for students in Ohio, in the nation and in the world.
- Establish reputation as a vibrant community of scholars where learning and research flourish.
- Obtain competitive funding for all of our graduate assistants.
- Implement an engineering and applied science curriculum that embraces entrepreneurship and commercialization.
- Become a top 50 engineering and applied science college in the world.
In order to recruit and retain the most talented future engineers, the college needs to make available scholarship aid to incoming freshmen based on both merit and need. We seek to dramatically increase the amount of scholarship aid available to our students.
To attract outstanding graduate students who want to earn master's and doctorate degrees under the direction of world-class researchers, the college needs to provide graduate aid for the duration of a student's degree program.
Democratization of Simulation
Simulation software has changed how engineers work in every discipline. The use of simulation software has been limited primarily to engineers with graduate degrees. We seek to broaden its usage. Undergraduates who are proficient in simulation software will have skills which future employers desire.
Neil Armstrong Initiative
To honor the legacy of Neil Armstrong, the first human to walk on the moon and an aerospace professor at UC, the University has established the Neil Armstrong Initiative. Crossing many disciplines and units, the initiative will feature scholarships and fellowships for talented aerospace engineering undergraduate and graduate students, a Space to Earth Research Center and a 21st Century Information Research Center.
