I've got the 2002 Annual Report and it's filled with TONS of statistics about only engineering. Some of it's slightly dated, but it's still fantastic.

Just look at how good a year 2002 was! If the engineering school followed up on that success, things must be going very well (well, before Cowen got out his chainsaw).

There are 41 scholarship funds and 36 endowed scholarships in the school of engineering. I'm not going to list the names, but the scholarships are in memorial to such prestigious graduates as John Riess (Ducky's father), Sheppard Francis Perrin (the scholarship I'm on!).
