Dean's Message

The Spirit to Seek

Inquisitive. Creative. Solutionist. These are fundamental attributes of Syracuse engineers and computer scientists. Unlike ever before, engineers and computer scientists are addressing the most important global and social issues impacting our future—and Syracuse University is playing an integral role in shaping this future.

The College of Engineering and Computer Science is a vibrant community of students, faculty, staff and alumni with the spirit to seek. Our degree programs develop critical thinking skills, as well as hands-on learning. Our experiential programs provide opportunities for research, professional experience, study abroad and entrepreneurship. Through cutting edge research, curricular innovations and multi-disciplinary collaborations, we are addressing challenges such as protecting our cyber-systems, regenerating human tissues, providing clean water supplies, minimizing consumption of fossil fuels, and securing data within wireless systems.

Our students graduate prepared to enter the workplace or continue their education in graduate or professional schools. Our graduates are sought after for their ability to translate what they have learned in the classroom to real-world needs.

I am energized to join Syracuse, a comprehensive university that values the impact of incredible researchers and inspiring teachers. We invite you to learn more about our academic programs and areas of research. I hope to see you on campus sometime soon!

Sincerely,

Dean Teresa A. Dahlberg
