What’s happening in engineering programs at Jesuit colleges and universities these days? From biomedical engineering research on skeletal muscle regeneration, to human-centered engineering integrated into a liberal arts curriculum, it’s an exciting time on our campuses.

Our future engineers are already applying what they’re learning inside of their classrooms to outside their doors and into their communities—in some cases, across the world! In this issue of Connections, you’ll learn about the University of Detroit Mercy’s partnership between its College of Engineering and Detroit Public Schools, Seattle University’s global humanitarian programs in Tanzania, Peru and Thailand, and much more.

We celebrate Earth Day this Friday by highlighting these schools and sharing the many ways their students are building a more sustainable world every day.
