About University of Arkansas
As engineers, we are data-driven decision makers. We are relentless in our attention to results, and our focus is necessarily on the objective outcomes of our methods. After all, how else can we measure our success?
The University of Arkansas’ College of Engineering prides itself on being a student-centered, nationally competitive research institution. What does this mean to our engineering students, our faculty and our community? It means we are committed to listening to what the data has to say about:
v The depth and breadth of our degree offerings;
v The quality of undergraduate and graduate students we are able to attract;
v The scholarly reputation of our faculty;
v The quality of the facilities that are available;
v The accomplishments of our graduates and alumni; and
v The resources available to our students and our faculty.
Increasingly, the data says the University of Arkansas is a rising star among engineering programs at public universities across the United States.
Following the successful conclusion of the University of Arkansas’ Campaign for the Twenty-First Century in mid-2005, the College of Engineering focused on using its strengthened res...ources to create transformational change at each of the levels listed above.
Taken together, the remarkable changes wrought by these investments add up to a premier engineering research and teaching environment. This is the kind of learning experience the University of Arkansas takes pride in offering to each and every student who chooses to study with us.
Arkansas has always been a nurturing home to those who seek – like engineers – to combine industriousness with ingenuity to generate great ideas that help to shape the human experience. That spirit inspired J. Walter Keller (’46 BSEE) to develop the modern pacemaker; and it is the same spirit that has made Arkansas home to the world’s largest and most influential company the world has ever known, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
At the College of Engineering, we are dedicated to fostering that spirit, and we invite you and all our friends to learn about the astounding variety of ground-breaking research that has made Arkansas its home. Truly, Arkansas IS where innovation is happening. We hope you will join us as the story of Arkansan innovation continues to unfold.
With warm regards,
John R. English, Ph.D, P.E.
Dean, Professor & Irma F. and Raymond F. Giffels Endowed Chair in Engineering
