Annual Reports

Losing the Secret and Keeping the Best

For years the Volgenau School of Engineering was touted as Northern Virginia's "best kept secret." As part of an ongoing effort to lose the secret and keep the best, the school published its first Annual Report in 2014. Since then we have produced a new issue each fall. The publications tell the story of Volgenau through narratives and numbers in seven thematic areas: data analytics, cyber security, sustainability, robotics, health care technologies, signals and communications, and global outreach. Each theme spans departmental and disciplinary boundaries and captures the depth and breadth of the work of the school’s faculty and students. We believe continued exploration and study of these seven socially relevant themes will solve real world problems, enhance people’s lives, and make the world safer, cleaner, healthier, and more prosperous.

Annual Report 2015 
30 Years: Then and Now

This report commemorates yesterday's milestones and highlights today's accomplishments. The visionaries who saw the need for a school of information technology in 1985 would be proud of our 30-year record of accomplishments.






Annual Report 2014 
Engineering a Better World

This inaugural annual report tells the story of the Volgenau School of Engineering through narratives and numbers in six thematic areas, which we call our areas of expertise. Some themes are well established, while others are still emerging, but each spans departmental and disciplinary boundaries and captures the depth and breadth of the work of the school's faculty and students.
