The Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering provides engineering students with a holistic education so they are prepared to take on society's challenges and opportunities in socially, ethically and professionally responsible ways. We deliver a high-quality student-centered engineering education that provides distinctive, authentic and supportive experiences that inspire students to make a positive difference. Our School is revolutionizing engineering education, with the aim of preparing students to innovate engineering solutions developed within a contextual framework that embeds humanitarian, sustainable and social justice approaches while infusing professional skills into the curriculum.
We provide a high-quality undergraduate education by emphasizing small classes and a high level of faculty-student interaction. The Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering has recently ranked among the top 11 programs at non-Ph.D. granting institutions by U.S. News and World Report. The school currently houses undergraduate degrees in engineering (integrated engineering), electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial & systems engineering, and computer science.
Our vision focuses on six pathways: Becoming an Anchor Institution, Enabling Engaged Scholarship, Practicing Changemaking, Caring for our Common Home, Fostering Access and Inclusion, and Embedding the Liberal Arts in Engineering Education.
We value being a KEEN partner because it feeds directly into our vision and one of our university strategic pathways: changemaking. We are an Ashoka Changemaker campus, and thus the entire campus values “making positive impact.”
A partnership with KEEN would come as we have just finalized a university strategic plan and are working on a new strategic plan for the school. Having a partnership with KEEN has the potential to catalyze more faculty around mission and vision.
