Hajim School of Engineering & Applied Sciences

“Now is the time for goal-setting and dreaming big,” advised Wendi Heinzelman during the May 21 diploma ceremony, her first as dean of the Hajim School for Engineering & Applied Sciences. Hajim graduates, she said, are uniquely positioned to make the world ever better. “For sure, the world needs more engineers to solve problems big and small for society.”
