Welcome from the Dean

With strong mentorship and rich opportunities, graduate students at Princeton Engineering learn to push the boundaries of their fields and go on to become leaders in industry, academia and government.

Graduate alumni start companies, become professors, deans, and presidents, win MacArthur "genius" grants, and receive many honors that recognize transformative impact and leadership.

Our culture is welcoming and collaborative. We bring together students and faculty from many backgrounds and from around the world who value innovation and engineering in the service of society. Diverse talent strengthens the work we do and the impact we have. With excellence across the natural and social sciences, public policy, and the humanities, the whole of Princeton University presents engineering graduate students much flexibility in working across disciplines to enable creative approaches to the problems that spark your interest.

Faculty are student-focused and care deeply about teaching and training the next generation. A low doctoral student-to-faculty ratio of 4:1 allows a personalized learning experience and opportunities to lead major research projects.

Please explore the resources here at Princeton, including the 44 specific areas of research highlighted by our departments, as well as our new Pathway to Graduate School program for rising college seniors.
