Our Guiding Themes

At the School of Engineering, we strive to create a healthier, safer, and more equitable world by educating our students to become principled leaders and innovators of tomorrow. The themes that guide our efforts include:

Building Community

We strive to maintain an environment that empowers faculty, staff, and students to fully realize their capacities and abilities. Our culture is respectful, supportive, anticipatory, and responsive to community needs—rewarding excellence and dedication while encouraging communication and collaboration.

Innovating Graduate Education

Our small class size allows us to explore and experiment with new ideas and practices in engineering education. We help foster deep learning in chosen fields of study, nurture an interdisciplinary culture of learning, integrate research into teaching, and prepare our students for success in the global marketplace by imparting a clear understanding of the socio-cultural impact of engineering.

Transforming Graduate Education

Lifelong learning and skill refreshment are important for keeping pace with technological advances. To help our graduate students stay ahead of the curve, we prepare them with master’s programs that support the discovery, creation, invention, and sharing of knowledge; and offer opportunities to become leaders of thought and innovation in their fields.

Empowering Scholarship, Discovery, and Invention

We translate research excellence into scholarship, discovery, and inventions that positively impact the world. We do this by attracting and retaining faculty whose research is of the highest caliber, investing in state-of-the-art facilities, creating a system of incentives that reward creativity, invention and entrepreneurship, and nurturing interdisciplinary connections across campus.

Connecting People and Ideas for Innovation

We are committed to partnering with leading industries, governmental entities, and Tufts alumni to drive positive change throughout the world. Our goal is to engage the global community and bridge the gap between ideas and real-world impact by encouraging research and experimentation that can lead to valuable new benefits and possibilities for society.
