The Princeton Engineering Office of Graduate Affairs serves as a single point of contact for graduate students, offering guidance and support that help ensure students have a rewarding academic and social experience. In conjunction with the six engineering school departments, the office provides students with academic and career advising and supports graduate student organizations and social activities.
