Fall is an exciting time at the University of Memphis. This is particularly true at
the Herff College of Engineering. Construction is ongoing as we make much needed physical
improvements to the exterior and interior of the Herff buildings; we continue to see
growth in enrollments through our extensive recruitment and retention efforts - new
freshmen enrollment is up by 50%; our faculty are consistently recognized not only
for their excellent instruction in the classroom, but also for their research and
scholarship efforts; a significant number of our undergraduate students are participating
in internships and co-op assignments and are securing full-time employment upon graduation;
and our alumni continue to be leaders in their respective fields.
In this edition of Herff Highlights you will learn more about many of the exciting
things happening at the Herff College of Engineering. I hope you enjoy reading the
stories and viewing the photos and videos of our dreamers, thinkers and doers.
