Nov 5, 2019

The only Centralized Application Service (CAS™) for graduate engineering programs significantly reduces time to decision and manual administrative tasks, helping revolutionize the pre-decision process

WATERTOWN, Mass. (October 28, 2019) – Liaison International, the leader in admissions management and enrollment marketing solutions for higher education, today released details about the ongoing success of EngineeringCAS™, the only Centralized Application Service (CAS™) for engineering programs.

Launched in July 2017, EngineeringCAS brings admissions offices an improved way to recruit, enroll and admit best-fit students while saving money and better allocating staff resources each admissions cycle.

EngineeringCAS has allowed Liaison to form important strategic partnerships with many engineering organizations and societies, including the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).

After just two years, EngineeringCAS:

  • Now serves more than 1,000 programs on dozens of campuses nationwide.
  • Is expected to process applications from 28,000 unique applicants during the 2019/2020 cycle.
  • Now offers scholarships to qualified engineering students.

“Today’s engineering admissions leaders are under tremendous pressure to yield best-fit students in the face of limited resources, increased competition and ever-evolving student demands,” says Ron Hyman, Liaison’s executive director. “The robust growth of EngineeringCAS in just two years clearly demonstrates its ability to deliver the results engineering programs require in order to achieve their most important short- and long-term gains.”

David T. Poole, director of admissions at the University of Miami College of Engineering, agrees: “The potential that I see in EngineeringCAS is almost limitless. It brings together all the aspects that you would need within enrollment management.”
