UConn Elevating its School of Engineering to Become a College
By Stephanie Reitz, University Spokeperson
UConn’s School of Engineering is being designated as a college and renamed to follow suit, reflecting its rapid growth and its importance in producing highly educated graduates who bolster Connecticut’s high-tech economy.
The update to the UConn College of Engineering’s name will also include two internal changes: the Department of Computer Science and Engineering will become the School of Computing; and the Department of Mechanical Engineering will become the School of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Manufacturing Engineering.
The UConn Board of Trustees approved the changes on Wednesday, and they go into effect Nov. 1.
