sweigard  Welcome From the Dean

Welcome to the Herff College of Engineering website. Herff is a strong engineering program located in an amazing town. Memphis is an idea city that is known for innovation in the areas of music, transportation, logistics and medicine, to name a few.  

People come to Memphis to tap into that creativity and challenge the established way of doing things. Memphis is a city that dared to build a railroad bridge across the mighty Mississippi River. Memphis is where Danny Thomas came to build St. Jude Children's Research Hospital because he dreamed of finding  a cure for childhood cancer. And Memphis is where FedEx founder Fred Smith decided to set up shop, when he took on the U.S. Postal Service by inventing the idea of overnight delivery.

The University that shares this famous city's name also shares its entrepreneurial spirit. At Herff College of Engineering we are committed to finding unique ways to solve problems that affect people's lives. We are establishing a culture where creativity and entrepreneurship are a way of life. We can promise that you will get your hands on some of the coolest research there is. Our engineering programs are small and personal, but the University at large has world-class research capabilities. We support our students in every possible way. Simply put, you will be inspired here at the Herff College of Engineering to do amazing things with your life and have an amazing impact on society.  That's why creative minds come to Memphis.  It's why I came to Memphis. We hope you will join us in Memphis, too.
