Statement of Solidarity

The faculty of the Computer Engineering Program expresses support to our Black  community, and stands with them against social injustice and racism.  We commit to listening, learning, and striving to create an environment where Black students, faculty, and staff are treated with compassion and respect.  The program wholeheartedly supports the statement and plan of action outlined in the Bourns College of Engineering solidarity statement. Read the statement here

 

"Computing is fueling a revolution that has changed how we live, work, interact and play. Advances continue at an exciting pace with breakthroughs driven by computing at all scales: from massive data being analyzed by warehouse scale computers, providing insights into science and medicine, to embedded devices integrated within our living spaces and infrastructure.”
