2024 Engineer Magazine


elcome to the 2024 issue of St Thomas Engineer! It has been another year

marked by incredible accomplishments and commitment to the engineering educational experience at St Thomas. While our greatest assets are the incredible students, faculty and staff who enliven our

programs, we can not underestimate the added energy of the state-of-the-art facilities in which we now thrive. In January, we celebrated the opening of the $110 million Schoenecker Center supporting engineering, arts and the sciences. The building has increased classroom, lab and collaboration space in the School of Engineering by nearly 70%, while advancing innovative programming at the intersection of all the STEAM disciplines. As one of the youngest engineering programs in the nation, we are building something truly special here in Minnesota. At the heart of this effort is the evolution of a national model of our transformative engineering educational experience. We thoughtfully engage our students from their first days on campus to the completion of the Senior Design Clinic, and beyond. Excellence in design and discovery requires reliance on the questioning mindset fostered by a liberal arts education, teamwork, hands-on skills and a rigorous technical education that are brought together here at St. Thomas. As I always conclude, our St. Thomas Engineer magazine is just a snapshot of what is going on here. I encourage you to drop us a line, follow us on LinkedIn or just plan a visit. We would love to give you a sense of the energy of our students, our faculty and the business community that surround us here in Minnesota. We’d be happy to connect… and show you around.

Cheers, Don

Dr. Don Weinkauf Dean, School of Engineering
