Curiosity begins at the Edge

Vital research and extraordinary students and alumni give us our Edge.

Our grads are career-ready and make major impacts on our planet—and beyond. Engineering alum Cambria Logan went from a co-op term at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab to leading a team that helped the Curiosity Rover operate on Mars. She’s currently at work on the Mars 2020 rover mission.
