It’s September, which means the School of Engineering is alive again with students. While most are returning to campus following a summer of internships, jobs, travel, research, and some much needed R&R, many are here for the first time. This year the school welcomed 760 first-year students, of which 201, or 27 percent, are women.  In addition, 273 transfer students are new members of the engineering community.
