Academics

The world needs technical talent to innovate and address pressing problems in energy, healthcare, the environment, security and communications. These problems don't fall neatly within departmental boundaries. That's why Thayer School has no departments.

Professor Shepherd teaches students

Engineer = Innovator

Our approach fosters creativity and effectively teaches technological innovation, including the skills and knowledge needed to bring new ideas to the marketplace.

The undergraduate engineering sciences major is part of the Dartmouth Bachelor of Arts program, and can be integrated with almost any other area of study.

Students in our graduate programs take a range of courses as they develop advanced professional skills. This prepares them to tackle research problems that may involve various fields of engineering.
