Bridges
and a Mission
• Educating leaders in academia, government, industry, and entrepreneurial
pursuit, through a rigorous curriculum of theory and application that
develops the ability to solve problems, individually and in teams.
• Creating knowledge of fundamental principles and innovative
technologies, through research within the core areas of EECS and in
collaboration with other disciplines, that is distinguished by its impact on
academia, industry and society.
• Serving the communities to which we belong, at local, national, and
international levels, combined with a deep awareness of our ethical
responsibilities to our profession and to society.
Our Strategy
Recruit and retain the very best faculty, students, and
staff, and then empower them to direct and drive the
creation and dissemination of knowledge.
