School of Sustainable Engineered Systems
The SSES is the union of five founding departments in the College of Engineering: Chemical and Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, Materials Science and Engineering, Mining and Geological Engineering, and Systems and Industrial Engineering.
The School of Sustainable Engineered Systems will be a leader in the improved design of linkages between our natural and engineered systems to sustainably provide material resources, water, energy, infrastructure, and manufactured products through innovative education, research, and outreach.
SSES presents a unique opportunity to create a center of excellence in interdisciplinary research and education in the College of Engineering, with the ability to take on the challenges of the 21st century. SSES offers the opportunity of becoming a locally, nationally and internationally recognized school; a school with a reputation rooted in excellence in research, scholarship and education.
SSES will become a leader in proposing creative sustainable solutions to current problems, which will influence the basic human and societal needs in energy and environment, water, manufacturing, health care, transportation and infrastructure, communication and information technology.

The College of Engineering wants to help you find employment and/or get into graduate school. Each fall semester, the Deans Office collects contact information from our junior and senior students to share with industrial partners and peer graduate schools for hiring and recruiting purposes. Employers and other universities often contact us with requests for information about our students so that they can recruit them. If you are currently a junior or senior in engineering or computer science and are interested in having such organizations recruit you, we are seeking your permission to exchange your contact information, demographic info and GPA with graduate schools and prospective employers. We highly recommend you participate, as this may lead to opportunities that you would not otherwise find. For example, you may not know that most engineering and computer science Ph.D. students are supported with tuition, fees, insurance and a stipend, fellowship, or research assistantship. In your field, universities will support you while you study and conduct research for your Ph.D
