Innovation with Impact

For 150 years, Thayer School of Engineering has transcended disciplinary boundaries to ensure that students gain technical breadth and depth plus a liberal arts-based understanding of the world’s complexities.

The Call to Lead Campaign for Dartmouth will support the expansion of the West End of campus, bringing together engineering, computer science, and entrepreneurship under one roof to create a seamless technology education to prepare the next generation of women and men for lives of influential leadership and global impact.

New Hub for Innovation

Dean Alexis Abramson speaks to how the new Center for Engineering and Computer Sciences will revolutionize Dartmouth's human-centered approach to engineering education and prepare tomorrow's change-makers.

A Shared Vision

Adjacent to MacLean Engineering Sciences Center, the new Center for Engineering and Computer Sciences will provide a new space for cross-disciplinary learning, innovation, collaboration, and foster a keen sense of community.

Research Neighborhoods

Thematic research neighborhoods will unite computer science and engineering faculty and students working on innovations in:

  • Advanced Materials
  • Biotechnology
  • Design Thinking
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Energy Technology
  • Machine Intelligence
  • Mobile X
  • Security and Privacy

Electron microscope will also be housed within the new building.


More than 70% of Dartmouth undergraduates take at least one engineering or computer science course. Dartmouth must build the capacity for all students to do so as technical knowledge becomes an essential part of a contemporary liberal arts education.

Spaces for Active Learning

Project labs. Maker spaces. A Technology-Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) classroom. The Digital Arts, Leadership & Innovation (DALI) Lab. Complementing Thayer’s existing project design labs and machine shop, these new flexible spaces will allow more courses to feature hands-on design, fabrication, and problem-solving experiences, giving computer science and engineering majors—and students from across Dartmouth’s curricular spectrum—an unsurpassed environment for learning by doing.
