Office of the Dean

Led by Interim Dean Partha Pande, the Office of the Dean in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture oversees the administrative, academic, and research functions of the college, providing leadership and guidance to faculty, staff, and students. 

The office is responsible for establishing partnerships and collaborations with other academic institutions, industry, and government agencies to foster innovation and advance research in engineering, computer science, and design disciplines. These collaborations provide students and faculty with unique opportunities to work on cutting-edge research projects that have the potential to make a significant impact on society.

The office also supports students throughout their academic journey. A range of student services including academic advising, tutoring, and mentoring help students achieve their academic goals. Networking opportunities and internship programs help students gain real-world experience and prepare for successful careers.

Located in Carpenter Hall on the WSU Pullman Campus, the office is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 5 p.m. Please feel free to contact us or schedule a visit. 

Letters from the Dean

  • Growing and building Spring is upon us. The weather is improving, finals are here, and our students are joyfully and proudly taking photos around campus in their graduation regalia.
  • Envisioning the Future Once again, fall has arrived. Our students fill our hallways, eager and nervous to manage the challenges of courses like fluid dynamics, calculus, or computer-aided design.
  • Laying the Groundwork As students return to classes and a new year gets underway, we look back at a great year of successes in the Voiland College.
