About Thayer

Thayer School of Engineering is a dynamic community of scholars and teachers committed to addressing critical societal needs and solving the world's most pressing challenges through human-centered research, technology innovation, and cultivating future generations of engineers and leaders via research and educational excellence. Our undergraduate engineering major is distinguished by the close integration of engineering and the liberal arts, emphasizing hands-on experiential learning, and a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a professional school of engineering, Thayer also offers an ABET-accredited Bachelor of Engineering degree, three master’s degree programs, and PhD degree programs. Our PhD Innovation Program is the nation's first doctoral-level program for providing skills and support necessary to engage in enterprising research and translation. Our commitment to entrepreneurship and translational research is further embodied by our faculty, which has one of the highest startup formation rates in the US.

Our new Engineering and Computer Science Center co-locates Dartmouth's engineering and CS faculties. It further expands our educational and translational capabilities by housing the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship and the Digital Applied Learning and Innovation Laboratory, two mission-oriented organizations focused on experiential learning and impact. Thayer also has close ties to Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and Tuck School of Business.

Dartmouth is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. Dartmouth recently launched a new initiative, Toward Equity, that embraces shared definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as a foundation for our success in institutional transformation. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds and with different identities and attributes.
