 A 
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.
Size:
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.
Quality: 
 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.
 Reputation:
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.
