Strategic Questions Where can we lead the world? Can we define the Engineering College of the 21 st Century? Positioning the College to leverage university investments from Discovery Themes Positioning the College to shape and drive state, federal and industry priorities Recruiting and retaining the best
Strategic Answers Attract world-class scholars and students Support through novel external funding streams Build on OSU strengths and Battelle/industry partnerships Manage challenges
Opportunities New national research priorities Growing cross-college and cross-institutional collaborations Proposal Development Center Faculty demographics Current Landscape Strengths Alignment with Discovery Themes Alignment with state and federal priorities Industry partnerships Weaknesses Not recognized as a national leader o Low NAE membership o No Top 10-ranked departments Challenges Limited infrastructure in growth areas Diversity Undergraduate growth
Our Vision Three new world-leading research initiatives Transform Ohio State into a Top 10 university Engineering College leads, and partners with, signature colleges and strategic industries
Talent Acquisition: Faculty Demographics Change traditional faculty mix. Integrate our scholars with rest of the world. Engineering Faculty Retirement Statistics
Research Expenditures Need to grow to $200 million in 5 years.
The Key Issue: Our Strengths Define Our Strategy Align units with national needs. Build on strengths. U.S. News & World Report Rankings
How to Achieve Our Vision Lead in three areas of national priority Manufacturing in transportation Data analytics Engineering-Medicine interface
Manufacturing for Energy Savings Automotive OEMs and supply chain Aerospace OEMs and supply chain National Network for Manufacturing Innovation Ohio Third Frontier OSC, OARnet, EWI, Battelle Driven by three top departments. Aligns with Energy & Environment Discovery Theme.
Data Analytics Common thread across Discovery Themes Professional colleges taking lead New degree programs Industry/Battelle partnerships New field: National leadership position is open. Driven by two large departments.
Engineering-Medicine Interface Spine Research Institute joint hires Neuroscience joint hires Cancer imaging — CEMAS Biomedical Engineering — Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute Aligns with Health & Wellness Discovery Theme. Supports and leverages Ohio State’s largest investment.
Proposal Development Center Build on successful Battelle model Attract major non-traditional federal funding Partner with V.P. Research and leading research colleges Integrate Ohio resources (WPAFB, NASA) with federal agencies (Pentagon, DoD, DHSS) Increase non-traditional federal funding by $50-80 million in five years.
Managing Challenges 2003-2012: 36% Increase in Engineering Majors Manage undergraduates through experiential education. Graduate student growth driven by research expenditures. Students: Number of Majors
Managing Challenges Percent of Tenure Track Faculty by Ethnicity We are competitive and poised to lead.
Managing Challenges Status of Facilities — “the best of times… the worst of times”
Next Steps Focus on research; attract top-notch and non-traditional faculty Align undergraduate growth with the research vision Focus on growing new external income streams to build three world-leading research initiatives Support these three initiatives via alignment with state/federal priorities and industry needs Take Ohio State into Top 10 nationally through strong alignment with Discovery Themes and cross-college partnerships
