The newest department at Princeton Engineering is also one of the most popular and influential — it’s been home to the University’s two most recent valedictorians, and has produced creative and visionary graduates in recent decades. But it’s also perhaps the least understood form of engineering we offer. What exactly is operations research and financial engineering?

Part Eleven: Building Big, Building Small

December 10, 2021

Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering… That’s what they are known by today, but over time the departmental names have shifted with the needs of society. Electrical engineers from Princeton have built the smallest microchips and the biggest companies. Civil engineers here have built “structural art” that combines high functionality with dazzling beauty.
