Welcome back for 2022-23

MSE is poised for our biggest year yet, extending on an unprecedented 11 point jump in our national program ranking last year, record research funding (>$50M in current grants), faculty and students in key leadership roles across the campus (including the University President!), major awards like our student-led NASA Big Idea Challenge team, and many others. And best of all, we are moving into the newest building on campus by January (Science One). There’s never been a better time to engage with our students, faculty, and staff.
