Engineers are makers. In a way, they have a second set of eyes. Whether constructing bridges, creating drug delivery systems or designing the next generation Internet, engineers and computer scientists “see” the future before it becomes reality.
The University of Kentucky College of Engineering possesses a compelling future. Over the past few years we have identified strategic target areas and specific initiatives that will ensure the Commonwealth’s flagship university remains not only the top-ranked engineering college in Kentucky, but one of the top 50 ranked colleges of engineering in the nation. However, “top 50” is more than a number; it is a way of thinking and behaving that is characteristic of the elite engineering programs in the country. Our pathway to becoming top 50 consists of an ever-widening loop of educational, technological and economic success that emanates throughout the Commonwealth, the nation and the world.
This website details where we plan to invest our time, energy, infrastructure and financial resources in order to convert our vision into reality. We hope it gets you as excited as we are about where the college is heading.
