A Word

From Our Dean

As a very proud UD Engineering alum, it is exciting and humbling to see how our alumni are blazing trails of success around the world. Our students have gone on to become decorated and highly respected leaders in industry, higher education and public service.

Our alumni base now includes multiple CEOs and countless inventors, a National Medal of Science winner and members of the National Academies of Science, Medicine and Engineering. In fact, at least two of our alumni are members of all three – an incredible accomplishment for a college of any size but in particular for UD Engineering.

We are incredibly proud of our alumni – and personally, I am grateful for your continued support of UD Engineering.

– Levi T. Thompson
