A portion of the building is reserved as lease space for companies who want to work closely with faculty and students.The Dean of the School is Dr. Kenneth Ball, its Senior Associate Dean is Dr. Steven Nash, and its Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies is Dr. Sharon Caraballo.DepartmentsDepartment of Bioengineering Department of Civil, Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering Department of Computer Science Department of Electrical and Computer EngineeringDepartment of Information Science and TechnologyDepartment of Mechanical EngineeringDepartment of Statistics Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research
