SETTING THE BAR FOR PEOPLE-FIRST ENGINEERING

Culture of collaboration

For us, people-first engineering is both a goal and a practice. We’re reimagining what engineering can be by closing critical gaps and elevating all people. On a campus with leading business, medical and liberal arts colleges, we share buildings with social scientists, auto manufacturers, doctors and artists. Excellent engineering fundamentals, integrated expertise and equity-centered values guide our research, culture and collaborations.
