In 2008, the National Academies issued a list of 14 “grand challenges awaiting engineering solutions in four realms of human concern.” We want UA College of Engineering engineers to answer the Grand Challenges for Engineering!
In 2011, the National Science and Technology Council issued the Materials Genome Initiative for Global Competitiveness. We plan to answer the call for advanced materials research and contribute to global competitiveness!
As the designers and builders of our future, it is important that engineers have an eye to innovative sustainable solutions to modern problems. It is for this reason that the College of Engineering at the University of Arizona has developed the School for Sustainable Engineered Systems (SSES).
