ECCS has a goal to integrate education into its research programs to ensure the preparation of a diverse workforce for the 21 st Century that can enable innovative advances in emerging technologies as drivers of the global economy. This vision is encouraged and strengthened by the Engineer of 2020 report of the National Academy of Engineering that foresees a "bewildering array of new technologies" confronting an engineering profession that must be educated in research, design and development, as well as possessing the attributes of strong analytical skills, creativity, ingenuity, professionalism, and leadership. ECCS strengthens its programs through linkages to other areas of engineering, science, industry, and government.
