In fact, the Morgan engineer is among the most capable of students studying engineering in the United States and abroad. The success of Morgan's engineering program is due to the quality and dedication of our faculty and staff. Our multi-cultural faculty bring a wealth of academic and professional expertise to the classrooms and laboratories. Personalized academic advising and career counseling are a major strength of our faculty-student interactions. We have directed our efforts to this end and invite those around us to join in this endeavor.
