Save the Date: Thought Leaders on Engineering & Education

As part of the Engineering Strategic Growth Initiative, there will be a series of talks during the spring featuring national thought leaders. These events are designed to explore the future shape of higher education, engineering and engineering education. In particular these are not to be missed opportunities for ENE PhD students to see and hear some of the very top people.

Please mark your calendars and stay tuned for additional dates with other outstanding speakers!
