Engineering a Better World

Grounded in the liberal arts, our program combines the foundations of engineering with project-based learning and service-focused experiences to empower a new generation of engineers with the tools and knowledge to make a difference.

How to Apply

The Human-Centered Engineering (HCE) program is a highly-selective program housed within the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences. To apply, designate HCE as your intended area of study on the Common Application when applying to Boston College.

The program really brings the human being into engineering. We want our students to consider the human being as they develop new technologies and identify how we can use engineering to make the world a better place.
