Engineering: Enhancing the Quality of Life

We educate students to become excellent engineers and leaders in their field – ethical and principled professionals – inspired to create solutions that improve lives.

Tackling the World's Big Challenges

As one of the first schools in the nation to be approved by the National Academy of Engineering as an NAE Grand Challenges Scholar Program school (GCSP), we are challenging our students to solve some of the world’s greatest problems.

Designing Solutions

In a city driven by innovation — home to many major government labs and engineering companies —  you will have access to the greatest minds and resources in engineering.

Motivating Minds

Here we measure success not by what you can take, but by what you can give. Respond to technical challenges with creative solutions that make life better for people.

Driving Innovation

From the director of naval research to award-winning scholars, you will learn from and conduct research alongside those working at the forefront of expertise in their field.

Leaders solving society’s greatest challenges

As technology advances, so does the need for ethical engineers. At the School of Engineering, we bring cutting-edge research into the classroom and educate students to be principled leaders who use their skills to serve others. Our graduates go on to become the go-to solution creators and thinkers in their field: from academia to government to private business.
