Message From the Dean

As 2016 comes to a close, it is a time to reflect on our collective achievements and our outlook for the coming year. We would like to thank each of you in the CoE family for your incredible work, dedication and commitment. We take great pride in Cane Engineering and in the many students and faculty helping to shape your world - in ways we experience every day and in ways we cannot even yet imagine.

As we prepare to celebrate our 70th anniversary in 2017, we are excited about all of the successes still to come.

Warmest Holiday Wishes,

Jean-Pierre Bardet
Dean and Professor
