On behalf of the School of Engineering faculty and staff, it is my great pleasure to welcome you as you embark on a new stage in your academic and personal journey. Here at Santa Clara University, we are “Engineering with a Mission,” committed to providing an education that combines rigorous instruction with leading-edge practice, while providing a heightened awareness of the essential role engineering plays in contributing to the common good. Your education will advance not only your technical knowledge and skills, but will also foster a sense of life-long learning that is critical in today’s rapidly changing workplace and innovation-driven global economy. The engineering profession empowers you to imagine, create, and deploy the tools, systems, and built environment that will enhance the quality of life for present and future generations.

Today’s engineering requires leaders of uncompromising dedication, integrity and conscience to solve the unique challenges of an interconnected, global environment. Silicon Valley pioneers were driven by the desire to explore, to innovate, and to improve society through advances in engineering. This is a never-ending quest, not just for the Valley, but for all the world at large. If this is also your dream, you will find here the kind of community that will stimulate your imagination, expand your knowledge, and nurture the voice of conscience and compassion that extends the best practices of engineering to help create a more just, humane, prosperous, and sustainable world for all.

For over 100 years, the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University has helped students turn their dreams to reality for the betterment of society. As we continue on our second century of engineering excellence, we welcome the opportunity to be a part of your journey as you fulfill your mission!
