Dear Friends,

The College of Engineering and Science is continuing to “Make a World of Difference” in engineering and science education and research. We produced the nation’s first Cyber Engineering graduates this past spring. The majority of these cyber engineers landed positions with one of our leading industrial partners, Computer Sciences Corporation. Our integrated and innovative approach to engineering and science education continues to inspire our students and faculty to pursue their passions beyond the classroom. In this year’s annual report, you will see many examples of how our students continue to gather national and international recognition for their accomplishments as we fulfill our vision for being the best college in the world at integrating engineering and science in education and research.

This engaging environment is helping us to attract outstanding students to our programs. As a result, this fall we welcomed an outstanding freshman class of 811 Engineering and Science students with the highest average ACT score (25.9) in our history. Our new $37million Integrated Engineering and Science building is coming at a critical time for our continued growth. It will provide the College an additional 128,000 square feet of classrooms, laboratories and project spaces specifically designed for active and project-based learning. These are exciting times in the College of Engineering and Science at Louisiana Tech, and I hope you enjoy catching up on our latest progress.

Best Regards,

Hisham Hegab, Ph.D.
Dean and Thigpen Professor
