Francis College of Engineering

The UMass Lowell Francis College of Engineering provides talent and technology in engineering, advanced materials, advanced manufacturing, electronics and sustainable energy. 
To accelerate the achievement of the Diversity Pledge goals, the ASEE Diversity Recognition Program (ADRP) was created to publicly recognize those engineering and engineering technology colleges that make significant, measurable progress in increasing the diversity, inclusion, and degree attainment outcomes of their programs. Recognition will occur at three levels: bronze, silver, and gold. Photo by ASEE

ASEE Diversity Recognition Program Award

The Francis College of Engineering has been recognized as exemplar and with a Bronze Award for the inaugural ASEE Diversity Recognition Program.

The ASEE Diversity Recognition Program (ADRP) was created to publicly recognize those engineering and engineering technology colleges that make significant, measurable progress in increasing the diversity, inclusion, and degree attainment outcomes of their programs.
