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. The publications tell the story of the school 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.

Transcending Technology

Annual Report 2019 - Transcending Technology

Breaking records and crossing boundaries— For the fifth consecutive year, the Volgenau School of Engineering has grown its research enterprise, student enrollment, and faculty workforce. Our research expenditures have grown by 90 percent and awards by 50 percent, our enrollment has almost doubled since 2013, and we have hired more than 100 new faculty. These numbers set new records for the school and break through departmental and discipline-specific boundaries. More change is on the way as we launch new programs, hire more faculty, and continue to transcend previous boundaries and extend our impact.

Powerful Partnerships

Annual Report 2018 - Powerful Partnerships

At the Volgenau School of Engineering, we take pride in the strength and longevity of our powerful partnerships. As engineers and IT professionals, we know the importance of forging alliances, building teams, and creating collaborations. Much of our work would not happen without the investment of the partners featured in this year’s Annual Report.

The Future of Engineering Is Here

Annual Report 2017 - The Future of Engineering Is Here

More than 30 years ago the school’s founders planted our roots firmly in the digital age. As those roots grew they gained depth and strength, supporting additional programs, anticipating and responding to industry needs, and becoming a force for innovation. We now apply our knowledge in computing and modeling to challenges in every field of engineering. As you read the stories and review the data in this Annual Report, you will agree our growth is moving us forward with impressive momentum. That is one of the reasons why we say: The Future of Engineering Is Here.

Engineering a Better World

2015 Annual Report abstract cover

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.
