Strategic Plan

faculty student interaction

Our College of Engineering strategic plan was developed with input from faculty, staff and students and aligns with the Iowa State University strategic plan.

The plan includes our vision, mission and objectives for each of our four critical success factors – education, research, diversity and inclusion, and engagement. College leadership will continuously monitor each objective to make certain key actions are producing measured results.

Inspiring incredible journeys

Preparing the next generation of engineers and pursuing groundbreaking research requires transformational thinking, bold actions and diverse partnerships. Grand challenges need great minds as we create solutions to make Iowa and the world a better place. Our pursuit of excellence means strategically investing in our students, faculty and staff to reach new heights. A prestigious program is nothing without passion – so we will continue to inspire and think creatively on our incredible journey.
