Program Enhances Career Opportunity. ..The Young Engi- neers Forum (YEF) is a program espe- cially for engineers with 0-10 years experience. The YEF was established in 1992 to help engineers succeed in the global marketplace. Programs are held in major cities throughout North America as well as Europe and Asia. The YEF is composed of qualified engineers who address issues concern- ing the engineering profession. The program consists of lectures on managing your personal finances and leadership skills. Participants also have the opportunity to ask a panel of engineers questions and receive career tips. In November 1999, University of Mississippi mechanical engineering students attended the YEF in Nashville, Tennessee. L 108 - ■■■ ■ M

" The approach we take is technology does- n ' t teach, but computers offer teach- ers innumerable methods of design- ing meaningful learning tasks for their students. " The school includes five computer labs and Internet access. " This is the classroom of the future.

IMPROVING SCHOOL F ENGINEERING Opening Doors Since 1900 The year 1999 marked the seventh year of continual growth of enrollment in the School of Engineering. This small but thriving division of the university is now the home of 650 students, and boasts an exceptional average class size of ten and a job placement rate of 100%. The School of Engineering is proud of impressive achievements made by students and teachers in the past year. Mechanical Engineering faculty member Dr. Ellen Lackey received a prestigious Teetor Award given by the Society of Automotive Engineers, one of 16 such awards given to outstanding engineering educators each year. Dr. Lackey was also the recipient of a 1999 Ole Miss Faculty Achievement Award. Computer Sci- ence major Patrick Hood also distinguished himself by winning one of three 1999 International Communica- tions Association Undergraduate Paper Contest awards. The School of Engineering now features the disci- plines of Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Geological, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as Computer Science, Telecommunications, and Geology. Engineering gradu- ates move on to jobs not only as engineers, but also in other varying areas including the medical profession, law, military service, business, and teaching. This year was the last year for Dean Allie M. Smith. The search for a new dean is currently ongoing. SPECIAL THANKS TO SARAH ELIZABETH GUNDLACH FOR PHOTOGRAPHS. WRITTEN BY ANGELA FAULKNER. 109
