Engineering Program Areas
Dartmouth has six program areas within the engineering sciences designed to allow for collaborative synergies across disciplines. Students are encouraged to chart a path that supports their interests, unconstrained by traditional academic boundaries. Both faculty and students draw from these multiple areas of expertise for maximum human-centered impact.
Graduate and undergraduate degree programs of study are developed based on each student's background and interests in consultation with their faculty advisor. Dartmouth's integrated structure facilitates cross-disciplinary initiatives and supports a wide range of collaborative programs.
Biological & Chemical Engineering
Using fundamental principles of biology, chemistry, and mathematics, the B&CE Program Area educates innovators in bio-inspired systems, circuits, and processes as well as biotherapies and biofuels.
