In 2016, the University of Connecticut School of Engineering will celebrate a proud milestone: the centennial anniversary of four-year engineering instruction at our institution. Throughout 2015 and 2016, we will highlight major accomplishments, individuals, milestones and more through our website, electronic newsletter and social media, special lectures and festivities.
We encourage all members of our UConn Engineering family – alumni, students, faculty and staff, and friends – to contribute reminiscences and anecdotes. Tell us of important technological achievements of our alumni and faculty, and help us reflect on the vital impact of UConn Engineering across the last century.
To get started, we offer a few details that attest to our rich history. These are by no means complete, and in fact they lack a variety of important "firsts" that we hope to include over the next two years as new insights are shared by readers. Our history – just as our future – is a vibrant, organic chronicle that begs your insights to render it more accurate, meaningful and representative.
