I firmly believe that one of my responsibilities as an educator is to convey a sense of excitement and to point out to students that their future careers in engineering look very bright, indeed.

Therefore, it is critical that our engineering curricula be flexible and adaptable, provide numerous real-world application examples and be delivered using modern teaching tools. This can only be accomplished if traditional teaching materials are reinforced with examples from the latest research work, with practical applications and with success stories from the marketplace.
