From ground-breaking faculty and engaging student organizations, to outstanding students and alumni passionate about making a difference in their communities, there is no shortage of news and stories to tell from the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. Among nearly 100 videos produced by the college in 2022, we count down the top five most-popular videos across our social platforms:


5. Auburn University President Chris Roberts

When Auburn University's 21st President Chris Roberts took the helm in May, we took a look at the impact he made as dean of the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering.


4. 2022 Auburn Engineering Student Recruitment

As we welcomed students back to campus, this video helped us share what the best student-centered engineering experience in America is all about!


3. Tiger Giving Day 2022: Space Robotic Mining Club Video

Each year on Tiger Giving Day, the Auburn Family comes together to support worthy projects on campus. This year, Tiger Giving Day donors helped Auburn University compete in NASA’s Lunabotics competition for the 12th straight year. The goal of this competition is to build a robot that can autonomously mine for ice on an extraterrestrial surface. 


2. Auburn and Boeing - 2022 On-field Football Recognition

Prior to Auburn's thrilling victory over Texas A&M, representatives from The Boeing Company and the college’s IDEAS program were recognized for this experiential learning opportunity where students are working on real-world, groundbreaking engineering projects for one of the world’s premier aerospace companies. 

1. Gary Bikes Bama

Gary Godfrey, a 1986 industrial engineering graduate who played alongside Charles Barkley as the Tigers reached the Elite 8 before embarking on a highly successful 30-year career in logistics and brand management consulting, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)  in 2019. ALS degrades nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It causes loss of muscle control, paralysis. It’s supposed to keep you from doing things like completing a 20-mile charity bike ride.

But it didn't, thanks to 13 students in Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering who said "yes" to the challenge.

Don't miss the incredible story.
