Fall 2018 Dean’s Message

Dear CBU Engineering Students, Alumni, Faculty/Staff, and Friends:PongMalasri3

We have had an exciting year 2018!  Much progress has been made in the Gadomski School of Engineering, including:

  • Our engineering programs have been listed in various rankings, including 2018 Colleges of Distinction Engineering Programs, 20 Best Value Small Colleges for an Electrical Engineering Degree 2018, 10 Best Value Small Colleges for Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Degrees 2018, Best Online Master’s Engineering Management 2018, Most Affordable Master’s in Engineering Management Online, and US News Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs.
  • “Construction Management” and “Data Analytics” concentrations have been added to our fast growing B.S. in Engineering Management program.  These are in addition to the two existing “Packaging” and “Sustainability” concentrations.
  •  The new “Construction Engineering & Inspection” Consortium has been publicly announced on December 3, 2018. This is in addition to the existing Healthcare Packaging Consortium (2010) and Surface Water Institute (2017).
  • We have accomplished two of the eight strategic goals in our Strategic Plan 2017-2022; “100% placement rate of graduates within twelve months of graduation” and “25 formal industry partnership agreements.  We have made significant progress in other goals as well, including “100% of graduates will pass a nationally recognized examination/certification upon graduation” and “State-of-the-art engineering facility.”

In the coming years, we will focus more in “innovation” and “entrepreneurship.”  The bottom line is the success of our graduates.  We want graduates to be technically competent, innovative, entrepreneurial, as well as good citizens who give back to the community.

On behalf of the Gadomski School of Engineering, I wish you and your family a Happy Holidays Season.

Regards,

Pong
