Research

Engineering research at Dartmouth reflects our belief that innovation happens at the intersection of disciplines. Our non-departmental structure and collaborative culture enable faculty to draw on multiple areas of expertise, including entrepreneurship, to address critical human needs.

 

Culture of Collaboration

Dartmouth's single unified department of engineering is a close-knit community of scholars with a broad range of expertise. The culture of collaboration extends across the hall, across campus, and beyond. Many research projects engage colleagues from other institutions such as Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Geisel School of Medicine, Tuck School of Business, Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, and CRREL, as well as industry—and offer numerous research opportunities for undergraduates.

Entrepreneurship

At Dartmouth, faculty and students tackle engineering problems with an entrepreneurial spirit, developing technologies and processes that lead to patents and entrepreneurial ventures. In fact, over half of tenure-track faculty have founded startups.
