Don’t just change the world — make it

Our faculty members are practicing engineers who are passionate about what they do. They know how to unlock that same passion in their students. Under their guidance, and alongside dedicated peers from other engineering backgrounds, you’ll do more than solve complex problems. You’ll develop new ideas and find new ways to approach the world's challenges.

We emphasize innovation, safety and sustainability in each of our programs. Moreover, you'll have many opportunities to put these values into practice. Special partnership programs, exciting internships with top manufacturers and service learning trips around the globe are just a few ways you'll bridge the gap from engineer-in-training to engineer-in-practice. 

The tools are all here. It’s time to put them to use.
