   Greetings from the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture!

M.Eng. graduate students Mubarak Almakhalas ’16 (left) and Pradeep Kumar Adla ’16 (right) with Dean Lou Manzione (center) in CETA’s
Thermo-Fluids Laboratory.
I want to send warmest greetings to all our friends, alumni, and supporters. There is much good news to share regarding the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA). We are enjoying record enrollments in a sustained period of unprecedented growth and student success. Some of our alumni may find it surprising that the college has grown to nearly 1,300 students. Students are responding to our themes of challenge and support leading to success, as well as the environment of engagement with our dedicated faculty and the support of our professional staff. Retention and graduation rates for students rank near the top for the University of Hartford. Our students are excelling in majors that are among the most challenging in the nation. Read more.

FACULTY PROFILE
Mary Arico: Helping students put learning into practice.


Plans for the Hartford.Health.Works. (HHW) collaboration with CETA call for a medical devices campus to be developed in Hartford, highlighting CETA’s expertise in medical devices, manufacturing, and education. The target industry for HHW is medical device startup companies. Mary Arico, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, can’t wait to get started on the project. She anticipates that she’ll collaborate with faculty from Trinity College on a middle-school-level biomedical engineering STEM program, where she can make connections between students and industry. Programming tracks include K-12 education programs, programs focused on getting students into manufacturing, and programs to place interns from CETA’s engineering degree programs at this small company incubator. Arico’s senior design students now work on projects with industry. With HHW in place, CETA will provide interns for startups and larger HHW companies to help move the process along and help solve a problem. Read more.

ALUMNI PROFILE
Todd Lee Conant: A Model Alum

When an exhibit of the life work of University of Hartford regent and architect Tai Soo Kim (Hon. ’15) opens in his native South Korea in February 2016, it will feature scale models of Kim’s designs, a few of which were built by CETA alumnus Todd Lee Conant ’11, M’14. As an undergrad, Conant studied architectural engineering technology and then stayed for his Master of Architecture degree, graduating in 2014. Even before graduating, he secured an internship at Tai Soo Kim Partners in downtown Hartford, and was offered a full-time position after completing his graduate degree. Read more.
