As you may already be aware, the Fulton Schools of Engineering is beginning the planning process for an innovative new school into FSE structure and will be redesigning two other schools — the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering and The Polytechnic School. This proposed new school will be on the Polytechnic campus with its prominent foci including the future of work, industry 4.0, human-machine teaming and systems engineering. This is an important development in the evolution of the Fulton Schools and plays a critical role in how we are collectively working together to meet emerging societal needs.
This announcement is a change in how you’ve come to know the structure of the Fulton Schools, and we are excited about the opportunities this restructuring represents to, simply put, make an impact. We seek to advance our academic programs, student experience, faculty research, partnership engagement and positioning of FSE to not only address critical questions but lead in engineering education and research. Further, the reimagining of our schools owing to this restructuring is part of a transformation planned for the Poly campus that includes investment in new infrastructure for instruction, research facilities and personnel that will elevate both the Fulton Schools and the entire campus.
