The Tufts University School of Engineering blends resources of a top-tier research institution with the strengths of a small liberal arts college. Grounded in interdisciplinary education and research, our students collaborate closely with faculty and peers in project-based work. Tufts engineering provides students with the tools to cultivate their passions academically and professionally in a dynamic and supportive environment.
We not only create but we ask how and why? Each engineering major and minor promotes an ethical and interdisciplinary approach, including significant strength in the areas of human health, sustainability, and human/technology interface. A melting pot of academic pursuits, talents, and points of view, the School of Engineering develops and distributes transformational new knowledge and technologies to provide holistic, significant impact on society.
Deeply immersed in both engineering technical work and the liberal arts, Tufts engineers are nimble and adaptable in- and outside of the classroom. Working closely with both faculty members and Career Services, our students acquire internships and career opportunities in various sectors and locations. A tech hub, Boston is a progressive city known across the globe for its academic and professional opportunity. About 80% of our engineers complete at least one internship and 60% conduct research within their 4 years.
We believe that multidisciplinary learning is vital to understanding engineering issues in the context of the larger world. Our flexible engineering program challenges traditional curriculum restrictions by allowing engineers to choose a second major or a minor from either of our schools. Changing what it means to be an engineer in today’s society, Tufts engineers connect ideas from philosophy to mechatronics to create the engineer of the 21st century.
