Introduction

About Tufts School of Engineering

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.
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.

Academics

Tufts graduate programs offer an exceptional academic experience, distinguished by close faculty interactions that will propel you from graduate study to your career. With an array of programs in arts and sciences and in engineering, Tufts combines the resources of a research-intensive institution with a supportive, collegial atmosphere.
Degree programs include:
