In today’s working environment,
employers expect students to Reinvent themselves so having a strong
theoretical background Helps them to pick up new knowledge and
apply the new knowledge to the working environments.
On Screen: Prof. Paul Hines, School of Engineering:
One of our goals is to prepare students to be tomorrow’s leaders.
My goals as a researcher is
to make electricity more reliable, more economically efficient and with
less environmental cost. My goal as an educator is to train students
who will become the engineers who will design the infrastructure of
On Screen: Prof. Jane Hill, School of Engineering
Research here at the College
of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences goes from the very fundamental
all the way through to the applied involving undergraduates all the
way through to post doctoral students.
On Screen: Franz, School of Engineering
For me coming as an international
student from Germany, I was amazed by the level of hospitality and interest
that was shown in me, especially by the teaching staff, and our advisors
who help us to settle in and actually made it possible for me to call
On Screen :Fu-Chiung, Mathematics and Statistics

Downtown Burlington is one
of the most key points why I came here. It’s very close, it’s within
walking distance with tons of live bands all the time, and there’s
great restaurants, there’s the mall down there, there’s cute little
boutique shops – it’s just a great time down there. And the waterfront
is close, you can go down there and watch the sunset, or just hang out
by the water, play some Frisbee – it’s really nice how close it
On Screen: Prof. Alan Ling, Computer Science
And the fact that Burlington
is so close to Montreal and Boston, it allows me to do a weekend trip
to the city and enjoy the rich culture activities.
On screen: Prof. Josh Bongard, Computer Science
I encourage students to pursue
their passion while here on campus. Knock on doors, find out what your
professors are doing, and get involved in research projects here at
the undergraduate level. As an undergraduate myself, I took the
initiative, found out what my professors were working on and I was fortunate
to get involved with a professor who was building robots and luckily
for me that lead to a career in robotics and research here at UVM.
CHIP COLE: I hope you’ve
enjoyed this brief introduction to the College of Engineering and Mathematical
Sciences at the University of Vermont. I invite you to join us! Become
part of a College that gives YOU the power to change the world.
