We may have reached the end of Fall Semester 2016 but that doesn’t mean our success is anywhere close to stopping.
    For the academic year 2016-17, we hit a record-breaking total enrollment of 6,000 students — students who are both here on our main campus and our Chongqing, China campus — all who have chosen to rise to the occasion and join us in our mission to engineer better. We welcomed the largest freshmen class yet with more than 1,200 students, increasing not only in quantity but also in quality and diversity. Compared to last year, the number of female freshmen enrolled increased by 20%, from 200 to 240 females, and is our highest in history.
    We opened our doors to 18 National Merit Scholars and two Cincinnatus Presidential Awardees, which is the highest scholarship available to students. Also, our new students earned an average ACT score of 27.8 and today, CEAS students account for more than 30 percent of the University-wide honors program.
    Our students are consistently seen as role models and leaders in the classroom, on campus, and beyond. For example, due to his exceptional academic and research background, our mechanical engineering graduate student, Matthew Owen, was recently accepted into the German Academic Exchange Service Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) RISE Professional program. This elite program allowed him the rare opportunity to intern for HNP Mikrosysteme Gmbh in Schwerin, Germany. Matthew was one of only two UC students to be honored with a prestigious DAAD scholarship.
    Whether it be in one of the numerous college laboratories or out in industry as they complete their cooperative education, our students continuously work alongside the brightest minds in the field of engineering. It is with their help, and the help of our industry partners, that we remain on the forefront of innovation. We are leading the hottest research fields, such as aerospace propulsion and water quality research, as we investigate breakthrough technologies to provide next generation aircraft power and we explore solutions in hydrosystems to better apply them in an urban environment, thus leading to sustainability.
    As part of our commitment to maintaining this academic and research excellence, we are currently in the third year of our “50-in-5” hiring initiative. Since its launch, we are pleased to report that we have hired more than 40 exceptional faculty members. Of these new faculty members, 40% are female and/or underrepresented minority. This speaks highly to our college’s Equity and Inclusion Committee efforts toward achieving greater diversity in the field of engineering as we continue to seek outstanding researchers and educators.     The College of Engineering and Applied Science takes great pride in our accomplishments thus far and looks forward to an undoubtedly bright future. Our students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors and partners prove that, WE ENGINEER BETTER™.
