I have something in common with our 14 new faculty and incoming students. This fall, we embark on our first year at Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science. Together, we will deepen our knowledge of resources available for student success, of our leading-edge research, and, perhaps most importantly, how to navigate Link Hall and Sci-Tech.
At a time when the world needs engineers and computer scientists more than ever, I can think of no better place to be than here at SU. As an intimate college within a comprehensive research university, we are well positioned as leaders in education and research. The intellectual curiosity of the faculty, staff, students, and alumni, to learn, discover, and solve is apparent—and is one of the many qualities that attracted me to the College.
I am grateful for the strong foundation created by interim dean Chilukuri K. Mohan and former dean Laura J. Steinberg. Along with our new students and faculty, I am ready to listen, learn, study and work, to continue the upward trajectory of our impact on education and research.
