Message from the Dean

Greetings from the School of Engineering. For those who do not have the pleasure of interacting with our students and faculty on a regular basis, I’m eager to share this newsletter highlighting some of the things they are up to.

In May, we said goodbye to our graduates and wished them well in their future endeavors. As always, we remain focused on educating our next generation of engineers and look forward to seeing their contributions to our community.

I hope you have a safe and fun summer.

Hasan Sevim, PhD
Dean, SIUE School of Engineering
