Titans of Transformation: Big Ideas Solving Real Challenges


Titans of Transformation welcomes Big Ideas from faculty and staff


Titans of Transformation presents an opportunity for the College of Engineering and Computer Science to connect our expertise and our desired impact with the ways in which we can create positive change in our community and society.

What is a Big Idea?

Big Ideas should:

  • Transform the College
  • Require philanthropy to achieve excellence
  • Align with existing strengths/priorities
  • Link to fundamental societal

Big Ideas are not:

  • Solely defined by a capital project
  • An interesting idea that is narrow in scope and more operationally focused
  • Based on a single naming opportunity

Consider: Where do we excel? Where can we go big? What will define us?
