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.
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.
Center for Engineering and Computer Sciences
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.
Thematic research neighborhoods will unite computer science and engineering faculty and students working on innovations in:
- Advanced Materials
- 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.
