Engineering: Today & Tomorrow | Summer 2020

W ith COVID-19 disrupting almost every aspect of life, I have been reflecting on how important it is for institutions of higher education to continue serving their current and prospective students. Our EngineeringCAS team has made a team-wide effort to continue providing uninterrupted service, even as our offices and workflows have changed overnight. I’m sure all of you are experiencing the same types of massive disruptions, and I want you to know that we stand ready to help. If you’re worried about the future of enrollment at your institution, you aren’t alone — 88% of college and university presidents shared this fear in a recent survey. 1 As we adapt our day-to-day jobs to accommodate new guidelines and safety measures, we must also challenge ourselves to find innovative ways to serve students and applicants. It might be months before we return to any sense of normalcy, so we can’t afford to wait to start evolving engineering admissions to meet the demands of the present moment. As your institution’s enrollment processes change, EngineeringCAS will provide you with the tools your school needs to make this transition quickly and effectively while positioning yourself for continued success down the road. EngineeringCAS will help you efficiently outsource your effort while retaining the control and decision-making that makes your programs unique. Between switching to remote work, caring for children and keeping up with news and events, your team already has a lot on their plate. Let EngineeringCAS pick up the slack so that you and your team can direct your energy toward your enrollment goals. Our model has always been to provide EngineeringCAS at no cost to you, the schools, and that will not change. The world has changed, but our commitment to providing transcript and document scanning, test score verifications, international evaluations, automated communications and customer service continues uninterrupted. We’re also helping our participating institutions recruit new applicants for the coming year. With EngineeringCAS, your program will gain exposure to a greater pool of applicants, making it possible to broaden your reach and target the right students to fill your next class.
