Welcome to ENGenuity!
Engineering at Caltech remains a frontier for pioneering advances, and a place for exploration and discovery — and we hope to share that with you via our new email newsletter for alumni and friends of the EAS Division. With ENGenuity, we are shining a light on student and faculty news, alumni endeavors, and will let you know of Caltech and EAS public events of interest. ENGenuity is a new channel for communication and dialog, and we seek your input. Please let us know what you think, what you would like to learn more about — and for those of you who are alumni of EAS, please be in touch with the editors if you have a great story to tell.
