Faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate researchers at Princeton Engineering ground their work in fundamentals, particularly Princeton's historic strengths in mathematics and physics, while aiming to solve problems of broad value to society.

The six departments within the engineering school provide the foundation for this work. Visitors interested in finding faculty members engaged in the core disciplinary work of engineering can filter our faculty directory according to our six departments and are encouraged to visit departmental web pages.  

The directory also offers 11 areas of interdisciplinary research areas, just a selection of the many areas of work that cross departmental boundaries:

Applied Math

Applied Physics

Art, Architecture, and Multimedia


Computing and Network Systems

Data Science

Energy and Environment

Financial Technology (FinTech)

Materials Science and Engineering

Robotics and Cyberphysical Systems

Security and Privacy
