Since 1909, Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering has sought excellence in achieving its two parallel missions: to produce new knowledge and to engage and educate students. Northwestern Engineering fosters a culture in which innovation is not only encouraged, but expected. That culture still thrives today, driving new initiatives, research discoveries, and superior education.
Located on the Evanston campus, Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering has eight academic departments, more than two dozen interdisciplinary research centers and institutes, a range of state-of-the-art facilities, and nationally recognized, award-winning faculty.
- Approximately 1660 undergraduates, 900 master’s degree students, and 860 PhD students
- 181 faculty members including 30 national academy members
- More than 275 labs, centers and affiliate programs involving students in research
