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.

MS Programs

At Tufts School of Engineering, students in our master of science programs can earn their degrees in one year. Students may also choose to conduct research leading to a master's thesis. In addition, Tufts Engineering's master's programs offer professional education courses through the award-winning Tufts Gordon Institute. These courses prepare our students for demanding management roles in the technology realm. Unlike most management education courses, these courses are designed in collaboration with education, management, and industry experts to equip engineers, technologists, and scientists for the volatile global marketplace. Tufts Gordon Institute also offers a Master of Science in Engineering Management, Master of Science in Technology Management and Leadership, and a Master of Science in Innovation and Management.
