Dean's Message

As the academic year gets off to a tremendous start for the School of Engineering with the addition of new faculty members and the creation of the Department of Bioengineering and master’s degree program in bioengineering, we celebrate another exciting beginning—the launch of our second century of engineering excellence at Santa Clara University.

Having commemorated our Centennial in style all last year (see our website:, we look forward with high hopes and great expectations to even better things ahead—and for good reason, as you will read in these pages. Our energy and sustainability programs are blossoming through participation in the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon competition, great success in cutting-edge fuel cell technology, and Latimer Energy Scholars program; our commitment to ethics education continues to grow and thrive, and our students and alumni honor us with their accomplishments and contributions to the field of engineering.

Yes, we are off and rolling on our next hundred years of engineering at Santa Clara. Who knows what great things the future holds?
