Princeton Engineering graduate students receive an advanced engineering education from top-notch researchers and teachers, preparing them for a range of careers in engineering, science, technology and management. The engineering school’s faculty-to-student ratio ensures that students develop close relationships with faculty and participate fully in cutting-edge research projects.
Students join one of six departments: Chemical & Biological Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, and Operations Research & Financial Engineering.
As members of the wider Princeton University community, graduate engineering students are part of a lively, diverse and attractive campus. Residents take advantage of an unusually wide array of intellectual activities, including performances hosted by more than 30 cultural organizations throughout the year.
Students enjoy New York City and Philadelphia, major metropolitan centers that can be reached within one hour by train or car, as well as the region’s natural beauty. Lake Carnegie, the nearby Jersey Shore, the Pocono Mountains and the historic Delaware River present venues for a wide range of outdoor activities, such as cycling and hiking, swimming and winter sports.
