Message from the Dean of the School of Engineering

Dear friends, alumni and prospective students:

Welcome to the School of Engineering at Catholic University. The essence of engineering is creative design, particularly as it relates to the solution of problems of national, global and/or social interest. There has never been a greater demand for engineers and computer scientists. This is especially true in the current economic crisis facing our nation. Engineers will certainly play critical roles and provide solutions to challenges in national security, alternative energy, and health care. Now is the perfect time to consider a future in one of the exciting fields of engineering

But what does it mean to be a small, private, Catholic engineering school? And what does it mean to be a student here?
