Tufts' engineering programs challenge the traditional boundaries of academic disciplines,
research, and the roles of engineers in our increasingly interconnected global community.
Every day, Tufts researchers are developing new tools to improve medical diagnosis and
treatment; novel materials for a greener future; smarter, more powerful computers; and
innovative ways to educate the engineers of tomorrow.
Tufts combines the atmosphere of a liberal arts college with the state-of-the-art
technological resources of a research institution. A low student-to-faculty ratio, world-class
researchers, collaborative laboratory facilities, and industry partnerships equip Tufts
engineering students with the skills to excel in their chosen specialties and improve people's
lives through a passion for innovation and a commitment to excellence.
Master's and doctoral programs in six academic departments, as well as the M.S. in
Engineering Management offered through Tufts Gordon Institute, give engineering students the
right mix of specialization and interdisciplinary exploration.
