Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering

We are the top provider of engineers to Silicon Valley, and everything we do is aimed at developing in our students a solid understanding of engineering fundamentals, analytic concepts and methods, and providing them with tools to develop innovative solutions to significant societal and technological problems.

We continue to build a stellar reputation on the extraordinary achievements of our students and unique, cutting-edge programs. We have:

  • Ranked #4 in the nation as Best College of Engineering among BS/MS public institutions by US News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2021.
  • Launched two vital new programs this fall! Computer & Software Engineering welcomed our inaugural students studying for an MS in Artificial Intelligence and Mechanical Engineering launched its first Robotics minor.

I am grateful to those who, through their generosity, have helped us achieve these and other successes.

Our mission is to produce, in ever greater numbers, outstanding engineers who are technically excellent, globally informed and socially responsible. I invite you to help us achieve goals such as:

  • Improve recruitment and retention of our students through scholarships and support of our MESA Engineering Program (MEP), which supports high caliber, industry-ready graduates from educationally and/or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Help our most motivated students enhance their career and professional skills preparation through our GO program, in which students are invited to take an active role in their career development.

The best is yet to come. Let’s make it happen.

Thank you,

Sheryl Ehrman, Dean
