Technology and advancement are at the core of the School’s interdisciplinary departments and academic programs.

Intensive departmental curricula foster a fundamental and comprehensive understanding of engineering that is amply supported by invaluable opportunities for original research and experiential learning in areas that reflect your particular interests.

In addition to our full-time professors who are globally recognized scholars and researchers, you will study and network with adjunct professors who are top professionals and acknowledged industry leaders in their fields. Uniquely designed courses let you create your own interdisciplinary concentration and explore your individual interests across the school.

We draw on the resources of a network of faculty members, advisors, alumni, fellow students, and Career Center professionals to foster and support student and post-graduate success. Students additionally enjoy the welcoming “home-away-from-home” environment and support of departmental graduate student societies.
