Book Undergraduate and graduate students deemed by many to be the best and brightest can attribute, in part, their success to the major role played by phenomenally talented faculty within the University of Vermont's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS).

Through the written word, professors have shared their visions and passions, and in so doing they have literally reinvented engineering education — one book at a time. Known nationally and internationally, these professors are established and connected with federal, state and industrial organizations, doing collaborative research and educational initiatives. They are also well known by educational publishing firms such as Wiley, Elsiver, Lewis, CRC Press, Springer-Verlag, and SIAM.

Stepping StonesAnd there is global notoriety for popular textbooks such as Abstract Algebra by Drs. Richard Foote and David Dummit. Now in its third edition, this book is used at universities around the world — from California to India to Singapore — including Berkeley, Caltech, Harvard, Yale, and Chicago, and is considered a standard teaching tool for algebra. UVM CEMS is also well known for the prolific work of groundwater expert and world leader in groundwater modeling George F. Pinder, whose ninth book entitled, Essentials of Multiphase Flow and Transport in Porous Media, was recently published by Wiley.

These 21st-century textbooks have become stepping stones to success and contain cutting-edge research, providing the technological advantages necessary for students who are destined to become the leaders of the 21st century. These are our future engineers, scientists and mathematicians, who will empower our society with their knowledge and awareness of social relevance and responsibility for work in service to humanity using thoughtful consideration for and stewardship of our fragile planet.

"In service to humanity" is a key theme within UVM CEMS to enhance human welfare and the human condition through the application of scientific and mathematical principles.
