Welcome From Interim Dean Eugene Eckstein
Welcome to the Herff College of Engineering at the University of Memphis.
Our College of Engineering offers you the best of both worlds: a small college of
about 1,000 students within a large, metropolitan research university.
Since opening in 1966, Herff College has developed a reputation for excellent classroom
instruction and alumni who make outstanding contributions to the engineering profession.
Now there are more than 7,500 alumni employed worldwide; some of their successes appear
in Alumni Profiles and others come out monthly in Herff Headlines.
Over 50 dedicated faculty members with outstanding academic and professional credentials
comprise the College enabling us to offer a variety of graduate and undergraduate degree programs. All undergraduate programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission or the Technology Accreditation Commission
of ABET, Inc., the recognized U.S. accreditor of college and university programs in
applied science, computing, engineering, and technology (http://www.abet.org). Accreditation ensures the quality of the education our students receive, and this
is important to job placement and the ability to compete for the best engineering
