Engineering education advocate and EngineeringCAS Advisory Board member Natacha DePaola, Ph.D., shares her perspective on the future of engineering in this live, 30-minute interview.

After years of trying to do “less with more,” many engineering admissions leaders learned the hard way in 2020 that doing “more with more” is the real key to weathering unexpected storms that have the potential to cause lasting damage to their institutions.

To help graduate-level programs accomplish that goal, the EngineeringCAS Community has been sharing the knowledge and insights of its members through a series of live and on-demand webinars that have helped programs navigate the crisis and prepare for a brighter future in engineering education.

On Monday, May 11, EngineeringCAS continues that series with a live broadcast of, “Vantage Points: Natacha DePaola” (2:00 – 2:30 ET).

From re-engaging international recruits to diversifying cohorts, former Illinois Institute of Technology Dean of Engineering Natacha DePaola will cover the most pressing topics on engineering campuses today. Register now to listen in during this conversation about:

  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Collaboration between engineering schools
  • Empowering students in a digital era
