The mission of the Lyle School of Engineering is to:
- Educate engineers and engineering leaders who can compete in new and emerging technologies and markets by teaching them to think critically, plan strategically, communicate effectively, and be adaptable to social changes.
- Conduct basic and applied research with the ultimate goal of technology transfer for the betterment of mankind.
- Encourage the engineering, technology, and industrial communities to stay abreast of changing technology by providing opportunities for life-long learning
In addition to providing the highest quality traditional engineering education, the Lyle School emphasizes the study of technology, leadership, engineering management, and entrepreneurship in basic engineering areas while providing exposure to the new areas of e-technology, information engineering, and knowledge engineering.
This educational process prepares graduates to be highly valued engineers with the appropriate interdisciplinary knowledge to be entrusted by society to create a sustainable and resilient world and enhance the global quality of life; serve others competently, collaboratively, and ethically as designers, managers, or leaders; demonstrate mastery and leadership as builders, planners, environmental stewards, innovators, and advocates for public health, safety, and welfare; and obtain licensing as professional engineers.
