Message from the Dean

I’d like to begin this post with some time sensitive information for our SEAS students, especially those completing their bachelor’s and master’s degrees this spring. The Kauffman Foundation has developed a unique opportunity for five university students across the United States to study entrepreneurship in Singapore–the Kauffman-Singapore Scholars Program. The program is fully funded by […]

The spring semester has just gotten underway, and as expected there is already exciting news that I’d like to bring to your attention. Duncan Moore, professor of optics, biomedical engineering and business administration here at the University of Rochester, has been named a Fellow of the IEEE in 2009. This is truly a well deserved […]

I just wanted to briefly welcome you all back to campus after what I hope was a relaxing and enjoyable winter break. Happy New Year! The spring semester will be underway in a couple of days and I’d like to encourage all of our students to continue challenging yourselves in your endeavors at the University, […]

During my trip to California, I met with numerous alums of our University, most of whom are graduates of SEAS, actively contributing to society in professions ranging from venture […]

I’ll begin this post with some exciting news about the University’s Nanosystems Initiative, a multi-million dollar nanotechnology center that’s expected to be fully operational come summer, and will focus on the development of fuel-cell and biosensor research. Congresswoman Louise Slaughter announced last week she had secured $1.6 million in federal funding for the initiative, bringing […]

Message from the Dean

As you may recall, I began last week’s note with a few words on the importance of global collaboration; our personal relationships and professional research are, after all, made more meaningful by outside insights and perspectives. We can learn much from the world beyond our campus, I wrote. Well, this week, I have the great […]

Message from the Dean

Given the number of hours we spend here each week studying (and socializing), it may at times seem as though the University of Rochester, or even the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, is its own discreet world. However, recently an international contingent of scientists converged on campus, reminding us of the tremendous value of […]
