Message from the Dean
With more than 1430 students now enrolled in our various programs, UAA's College of Engineering is poised to become a globally prominent center of engineering research and education. We have settled in to our new Engineering and Industry Building (EIB) and renovated Engineering & Computation Building (ECB). These state-of-the-art facilities have inspired increased outreach by engineering alumni and others to current and future students--including K-12 students--with the goal of inspiring and informing them about the opportunities available at UAA. Part of this effort includes the creation of a 4-year scholarship designed to recruit and retain Alaska’s top-performing high school students in our programs.
In addition, UAA's College of Engineering has seen a dramatic increase of more than 130% in research expenditures. Our faculty and facilities are up to the task of meeting the increasing demand for the next generation of Alaskan engineers.
I am also pleased to report that our registration for our 2017 Summer Engineering Academies is now open. The academies hosted record numbers of 5th - 12th grade students in both Anchorage and (new last year) Mat-Su, inspiring them to pursue engineering and become part of building Alaska's future.
We invite you to browse our website to find out more about the various opportunities available through UAA’s College of Engineering, and feel free to contact me directly with any questions you might have about our programs.
