Message from the Dean
Prairie View A&M University’s Roy G. Perry Roy G. Perry College of Engineering has a rich and well established legacy of producing some of the most outstanding engineers, computer scientists and technologists in the nation. However, as our country faces the growing issue of fewer secondary students choosing to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical (STEM) fields of study, this legacy is in jeopardy.
The present day millennium students are faced with many more challenges than students of twenty years ago resulting in a lack of interest and preparation in the STEM fields of study. Therefore, engineering schools must address this issue as a realistic threat to the core fabric and future of engineering education. It is my opinion that the leadership of engineering schools throughout the country must be both cognizant and equipped to develop strategic plans to overcome this shrinkage of the STEM pipeline.
