From Dean Robert E. Peck

Message from the Dean

The College of Engineering continues making great strides in achieving its goal of national prominence through impactful research, innovative education programs, and life-changing outreach.  We have experienced spectacular enrollment growth, hired exceptional faculty from top universities, created new opportunities for learning and discovery, e.g., bioengineering and data science, fostered student engagement in competitions and community service, and attracted unprecedented alumni support.

Our main focus is on our students and providing them with a world-class education and hands-on experience through research, internships, and experiential learning.  The success of our educational programs is guided by our distinguished faculty, who continue to set the standard for excellence at UMass Dartmouth and in their fields of expertise.  The approach reflects an ongoing commitment to life-long learning, the ability to work in multidisciplinary settings of diverse people, integration of research and teaching, and an appreciation of innovation and entrepreneurship in all we do.  The value of an engineering degree from UMass Dartmouth is evident in our high job placement rates and entrance into graduate studies.

We invite you to join the UMass Dartmouth team in engineering a better tomorrow for our citizens and in supporting an even brighter future for the College of Engineering.
