What the world needs
The engineers of the future will be asked to do more than build bridges. We're educating innovative thinkers whose broad knowledge and passion for helping others will set them apart in whatever career they pursue.
A Range of Careers
Human-Centered Engineering will prepare students to be catalysts for good—whether it's in the private or public sector, industry, or non-profit realm. Potential career paths include:

“This is not engineering for engineering’s sake—this is engineering for impact. ”
The threats facing society and our planet are real and rapidly progressing—but so are the technologies being developed to address them. We're educating the next generation of science thinkers to lead change where it's needed most.
