Traditions & History
We’re proud of our history. But our history has never limited us. It propels us and provides the momentum to create new history—not just for the university, but for the world. It lives on with our alumni and it’s constantly being made in our facilities. As you read our history and learn about our traditions think about what still remains to be done, seen, and explored. Think about how far we’ve come. We’re still thinking about how far we want to go.
The University’s growing expertise in national defense, information technologies, energy, bioengineering, and biotechnologies creates opportunities for the numerous companies that support those interests to excel in the global marketplace.
