College of Engineering COVID-19 Response

The safety of students, faculty and staff is the University's and the College of Engineering's top priority at this unprecedented time. In that spirit, here is information likely to be of particular interest to the College of Engineering community:

  • All functions of the College are expected to continue, including its most important function, the instruction of our students. The situation remains fluid, but the University is posting frequent updates on its website and the College will use its website, email and social media to keep students, faculty and staff updated.

  • Ph.D. program operations will continue as before but will be adapted to a virtual environment. All Ph.D. courses will be taught with the aid of technology. Students will continue to schedule and defend dissertations and proposals using whatever technology committee members, students and dissertation chairs agree is the best option for all parties. Faculty supervisors and Dr. Erick Jones will support Ph.D. students as they normally would while working remotely.

  • Special Role of GTAs, GRAs and Graders: Research students who usually work in their offices are asked to continue their research at their place of residence with email discussions with faculty members on progress. GTAs, GRAs and graders, as far as possible, should be working productively off campus. However if a GRA is involved in experiments that require on-campus attention, it may be an activity that can be safely accomplished on a very limited basis in a research lab while practicing social distancing. The supervising professor will monitor activities closely to ensure safety, particularly ensuring that students are not in a lab alone.

    GTAs and graders may be asked, but cannot be forced, to assist in the teaching and instruction activity on campus on a very limited basis. Care must be taken to ensure that this is a socially distancing activity. They can of course grade and help instruction online from their place of residence, assuming appropriate computer access, as overseen by the supervising professor.

  • Student organizations should use online options to conduct meetings.
