We are committed to a culture that adheres to the highest ethical standards and seeks excellence in education, research, and entrepreneurship.

Our mission

As a department in the College of Engineering, we share the mission of the College: "Anchored by our land-grant identity and the university’s motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), the College of Engineering educates and inspires students to be critical thinkers, innovators, and leaders. We create new knowledge, technologies, and sustainable solutions that address complex social and technical challenges."

Our vision

Driven to serve, our faculty, students, and stakeholders responsibly address globally significant socio-technical issues. We pursue complex research challenges, reimagine computing to reflect its ubiquitous impact on society, and work across disciplines to help individuals and communities thrive. To enable this vision, we cultivate a supportive and engaged community that reflects the world we serve.
