Admissions

Interested in engineering?

Engineers are not only scientists. They are inventors, designers and pioneers. If you can imagine a greener car, a more fertile rooftop garden, even a neural implant to restore eyesight, an engineering degree can help you build it. Our students are already working on these projects and many more in our state-of-the-art labs.
