    A note from the Dean: Intelligent Infrastructure

    As the world around us grows smarter, our country must grow smarter with it. And here at the CEC, I am proud to say that we are leading this charge to improve the lives of all Americans by improving the infrastructure around them.

Intelligent Infrastructure

Our college is pushing the boundaries of the intelligent infrastructure through novel innovation that leads to implementation. We're also working to extend the useful life of the existing infrastructure across the U.S.
