Titans of Transformation Big Ideas

Let’s focus our efforts right here in our region, tackling the most challenging adaptive problems we face in our communities.

The College of Engineering & Computer Science recently embarked on this bold and disruptive initiative, which features Big Ideas – built from the ground up – that inspire collaborations, investments, and positive impacts that position the college at the nexus between challenges and opportunities.

Purpose-driven, community-connected, investment-worthy research defines our inaugural Big Ideas. These projects, led by faculty champions committed to a deeper engagement with our communities and enhanced opportunities for our students, seek to address fundamental societal challenges through transformative collaboration and innovation.

Through private support, Big Ideas will take ideas from good to exceptional, drive innovation, and spark next-level collaborations that will generate new knowledge, powerful solutions, and positive change.

“At its purest state, Big Ideas is about creating a better future… tackling deep-seated problems, responding to our communities, establishing access to innovative curriculum, and preparing the next generation of culturally competent engineers and computer scientists.”
