Our faculty and graduate students are active participants in scientific and engineering discourse.

In 2007, engineering faculty published an average of six refereed journal articles. 22% of those journal articles were co-authored with one or more students. CSU’s electrical and computer engineering and atmospheric science programs ranked in the top ten nationally by the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, a ranking that compares academic programs according to quantifiable data, such as publications, federal grant dollars awarded, and honors and awards.
