The UI College of Engineering is ranked among the top 20 percent of engineering graduate and undergraduate programs nationally by U.S.News & World Report. The college has succeeded in attracting and retaining talented students from around the world. In fact, incoming students’ ACT scores are in the top 10 percent nationally. And more than 50 percent of students have graduated with an additional major, minor, certificate, honors, or with distinction.
Enrollment to the college has grown steadily over the past seven years—from 1,201 students in the fall of 2005 to 1,840 in the fall of 2012. The college also has experienced tremendous growth in research and outreach programs and teaching and service activities.
To continue this impressive growth, impact, and success, a facility expansion and enhancements are necessary. The college is bursting at the seams of its current facility, and an addition to the Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences will maintain and enhance the size and excellence of our programs while allowing ongoing productivity of faculty, staff, and students.
