    With the 2015-16 Fall Semester drawing to a close, the college has much to celebrate as we head into the new year. At CEAS, we are proving each day that we are innovators and entrepreneurs, capable of work-ing at the very edge where world-changing knowledge unfolds.
    I’m pleased to report that our increasing student population continues to exemplify our legacy of excellence, quality and achievement. In fact, nearly half of all National Merit Finalists at UC are enrolled in our college, 80 out of the total 170 students to be exact! Twenty-three out of the 80 were incoming freshmen and among these students are four Cincinnati Excellence Scholarship winners and one Cincinnatus Presidential Scholarship recipient.
    Additionally, in a University-supported effort to better serve our record enrollment, the college is aggressively hiring new faculty members as a part of our “50 in 5” hiring initiative. To date, we have brought aboard 26 outstanding educator-researchers with varied skills and expertise who are already significantly bolstering our interdisciplinary research capacity and enhancing our students’ learning experience. These faculty are also significant in improving our national and global reputation as we continually reach far beyond our borders in search of strategic partners who will leverage our educational and experiential learning opportunities, and better preparing our students for the global workforce.
    Meanwhile, here on the home front, we continue to be a model for academic distinction, industry collaboration and next-gen innovation. We are leading the way as an elite NSA National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations, our Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS) Center is the number one ranked project by NSF in terms of its return on investment, and the UC Simulation Center is currently in its third year of the $5 million grant provided by the P&G Connect+Develop Public/Private Partnership Award recognizing outstanding public/private collaboration.
    As you read through this issue, I know you will share the pride I feel in seeing the important contributions we are making to the world of engineering and technology that impact the lives of all of us. The future simply could not look any brighter for the college and none of this would have ever been possible without your continuous support and cooperation! Thank you for joining us on our journey — together, WE ENGINEER BETTER™.
