The College of Engineering was recently presented with Boeing's "Supplier of the Year" award for providing exceptional performance and contributions to Boeing’s overall success. The COE, along with 16 companies, received the award during a ceremony held at the San Diego Convention Center.

The selection of the COE was on the basis of a longstanding relationship that included a consistently superior pipeline of talent, many successful collaborative projects, and partnership on research and development efforts. "These partners have gone above and beyond the call to help Boeing provide the best, most affordable products and services possible," said Jack House, leader of Boeing Supplier Management.

The COE was honored in the category of "Academia" for its outstanding performance as a strategic university. "This award is a wonderful validation of our efforts to support regional socioeconomic development and to partner with Southern California business and industry," says Forouzan Golshani, dean of the College of Engineering. "Our long and multifaceted relationship with Boeing has included numerous research and development projects, educational initiatives, student scholarships and support, and the Boeing Endowed Chair in Manufacturing—not to mention the fact that more than a few of their engineers have come from our program."
