Graduate Studies

Cover of graduate programs bookletPrinceton Engineering graduate students participate in high-impact research projects across a variety of disciplines and benefit from close relationships with world-class researchers and teachers.

Graduate students join one of the engineering school’s six distinguished departments. However, opportunities abound to engage with the broader University, a diverse and vibrant community. This allows for research that crosses traditional boundaries between engineering departments and other academic disciplines – with a fluidity that is unique to Princeton – while enjoying rich interactions with faculty and students from across campus, including those in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Princeton Engineering students develop technical expertise and an understanding of the broad social context in which they will pursue their careers.

Princeton Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.), or Master of Engineering (M.Eng.).

Every Princeton Engineering Ph.D. student receives full funding, while master's students may receive teaching and/or research assistantships.
