Welcome to the spring semester. We have all been through a tumultuous period in our history, so I hope you approach this new semester with an eye toward staying safe, healthy and taking time for yourself. That includes taking advantage of the college and university resources for time management, career services and counseling, should you need them.
2021 closed after celebrating more impressive news from students, faculty and alumni from the College of Engineering. Student groups found ways to complete impressive service projects. Faculty earned new research awards and national leadership roles, while sharing their research expertise on issues here in Philadelphia, and bioengineering PhD student Jordan Langston was awarded the prestigious NIH F31 Predoctoral Fellowship.
Turning your attention to the spring means preparing for the upcoming career fair for many of you. Dozens of employers will seek to hire YOU for jobs and internships. Preparation is key, as our Center for Academic Success and Advising has weekly sessions to help.
We are excited to see our students continue on this upward trajectory and keep with healthy behaviors so we can see a more vibrant campus community later this spring.
Dean, College of Engineering
