Dean's Message

On behalf of the SJSU Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering, welcome!

We are a community of dedicated students, staff, faculty, and administrators, each enriched by our Silicon Valley roots to grow new technologies for a sustainable society in an era of increasing scarcity. I am personally committed to inspiring the long-term planning and creative leaps necessary to keep that vision in the forefront of our daily efforts.

For students, that vision means access to rich curricula taught by outstanding faculty members whose programs are collectively ranked among the nation's top 20 for engineering schools that educate bachelor's and master's level students. It means access to productive laboratories and transformative internships. It means scholarships and special programs like our Global Technology Initiative that has connected our people with industry professionals in China, Taiwan, and India since 2004. And it means jobs for SJSU alumni working in leading technology firms here in Silicon Valley and around the world.

For partners, that vision means access to a professional engineering workforce whose technical capabilities and international perspective spur the kinds of productive insights and practical solutions needed to address a complex array of global problems. It also means the chance to develop specialized laboratories and curricula that shorten the learning curve and production timelines necessary to link ideas to outcomes. Ultimately it means a relationship with the next generation of innovators striving to produce tomorrow's products and processes.

We are dedicated to harnessing the passion and work ethic of our stakeholders, and we're proud to share our programs with you. Tour our website and get to know us better. Then make plans to take a personal look at the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering. Visit our labs, read our published research, chat with our students, and contribute to our vision. We're tackling today's global opportunities and challenges.

I hope you will join us.
