Inside INdiana Business: Marian Engineering School Aims to Fill Talent Gap

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Marian University in Indianapolis says it is doing its part to help fill the engineering talent pipeline in Indiana. The university this month broke ground on the E.S. Witchger School of Engineering and earlier this year selected Dr. Binh Tran as the school’s founding dean. Marian President Dan Elsener says the launch of the school in the fall of 2022 will stimulate growth in central Indiana and beyond.

In an interview on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, Elsener said a focus on engineering is a priority for the university’s board of trustees.

“If you understand the ecosystem in Indiana, we’re a manufacturing state, biomedical engineering state,” said Elsener. “We have a great medical school here in central Indiana. We see the need for diversity in the engineering field…and we found an outstanding national leader to lead the effort.”
