Champions focus on success. They keep their eye on the prize, and put in the time and the work to achieve. They listen well and watch carefully. They have a big vision of what can be. When they become successful, some move on to champion what matters to them. These Champions of Engineering have done that, bringing the same drive and vision, layered with generosity, to supporting research and teaching that makes a difference in the world. They are the champions of our world.
