s te University f Utagears up fr anterseasn f PAC-12 atetics,te Cege f Engineeringis preparing t cmpeteacademicay as a PAC-12
contender. As Utah’s ag
-sip engineering prgram,te Cege embraces
the opportunity to redene excellence among a new set of 
peers. We are asking ur facuty eaders, advisry bard
members and corporate partners what it means to be ahigh-performing school when the competition now includes
severa f te tp engineering prgrams in te natin.Fr mre tan a decade, Uta’s investments frm te Engi-neering Initiative and te Uta Science Tecngy and Re-
search Initiative have helped accelerate our rate of growth instudent and faculty size, research expenditures and degree
utput. Te University f Uta is te pipeine fr engineeringand cmputer science graduates in a state tat as earnedte mst tp 10 ecnmic rankings f any state in te U.S. T ep sustain Uta’s tec-driven ecnmy, te Cege
must continue to grow in size, quality and reputation. Incritical metrics, the College compares well among PAC-12engineering programs, including: average quantitative GRE’s
fr entering graduate students; percentage f facuty mem-bers in te Natina Academy f Engineering; tta researc
expenditures; and the average amount of research expendi
-tures per facuty.In ter categries, te cmpetitin gets tuger. Te
University of Utah’s tuition is lowest among PAC-12 schools,and we are comparatively small in undergraduate and
graduate engineering enrments, despite years f acceer-
ated growth. While competing academically with Stanford,Berkeley and USC sets a high bar, this comparison will help
te Cege f Engineering rise t te caenge.
Buiding n an 84% increase in graduates in
the last decade, we envision a College of Engineering
substantiay arger in bt undergraduate and gradu-
ate enrollments. We are on a trajectory for growth en
-anced by strategic recruiting and utreac prgrams,and sustained by cntinuing state investments.
 The College of Engineering will be raisingadmission standards to ensure the students we acceptare better prepared to succeed. We will continue torecruit exceptional faculty who will advance the Col
lege’s strategic objectives, and award tenure to facultywho meet our high standards for research, service and
effective teacing.
We will aggressively promote programs
and attributes tat differentiate te Cege f Engi-neering, suc as tecngy innvatin, entrepre-neurism, and arge-scae, interdiscipinary researc
successes. Best known for its pioneering efforts incomputer graphics, scientic visualization, fossil ener
-gy, rbtics, neura interfaces and MEMS, te Cegeas emerging strengts in data science, nantecn-gy and nucear engineering.
I hope you will enjoy reading this year’s report. I think you will nd our new association with the nation’s topengineering schools is generating excitement about
ur visin fr te future.
