UNC Charlotte has announced plans to grow the William States Lee College of Engineering by building a focus on computational engineering. Through the “Engineering North Carolina’s Future” program, the Lee College plans to increase the number of highly skilled graduates in this field, as well as support new faculty research and expand facilities. Programmatic enhancements will also be developed, most notably integrating AI across curricula College-wide. A new concentration in machine learning is also being planned as part of the enhancements.
