Graduate Programs

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.

Research Area Highlights

Engineering for Sustainability

Engineering for Human Health

Engineering the Human Technology Interface

Cognitive Science, Ph.D.

Matthias Scheutz, coginitive and computer scientistAssociate Professor Matthias Scheutz is the director of the interdisciplinary Cognitive Science program. Cognitive science is an interdisciplinary effort to understand and explain the mind. It draws on knowledge from psychology, computer science, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, neuroscience, and biology, among others. Cutting across the information and life sciences, cognitive science is a paradigmatic multi- and inter-disciplinary research program with enormous future societal benefits, especially as intelligent artificial agents are becoming part of our lives.
