The vision of the College of Engineering is for our students to become world change agents – by creatively integrating the fundamentals of engineering and a robust liberal arts foundation, into their future careers in the engineering workforce, entrepreneurial activities, global and social enterprises, and applied research. For this reason, we are excited to embrace a systematic program which will empower our students to address these Grand Challenges. Solving these challenges will require the best efforts of our faculty and students, integrating their knowledge, expertise and creativity, with a variety of other experts in global and social issues.”
George Fox faculty and students are actively addressing many of these challenges through the school’s curricular programs, research, Servant Engineering and Senior Design projects. Our goal is to summon students to action by implementing the George Fox College of Engineering Grand Challenge Scholars Program, in which each student scholar-apprentice will be guided by a faculty mentor to complete a research project, interdisciplinary curriculum, and an entrepreneurial, global and service learning experience that demonstrates intellectual and thematic connectivity to one of the NAE Grand Challenges.
