The Lyle School is changing the way people think about engineers. In addition to providing a new model for
engineering education, we are attracting a diverse mix of talented students once unlikely to have considered careers in engineering or technology. In the past five years, driven by our bold new vision and assertive attitude, we have tripled the number of applications from a broad range of extraordinarily talented students across our nation. Today, we are fortunate to have one of the highest percentages of female engineering students anywhere, and we maintain a commitment to be the first engineering school to reach gender parity in our student population.
Our faculty are recognized internationally for their remarkable contributions to engineering and society.
Recent additions include such nationally prominent experts as Dr. Delores Etter, former assistant secretary of the U.S.Navy and a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and Maj. Gen. Dr. Jeff Talley, U.S. Army Reserve, who
is credited with securing Sadr City in Baghdad through his vision of “engineering the peace.” The Lyle School of
Engineering is well on its way to amassing one of the strongest international talent pools in engineering leadership and research.
Our strategic plan is inspired by a vision to be one of the most influential education and research centers for
engineering and technology on the globe – one whose work will define the new American engineer and restore our role as technology leaders.
