The Graduate Certificate in Bioengineering is designed to formalize the training of students specializing in the engineering analysis of living systems. Over the past decade, Princeton faculty have developed new courses that address the design and control of living systems at multiple scales, from single molecules, to cells, tissues, and organisms. Taken together, these classes provide a coherent educational framework that can take the place of a missing graduate program in bioengineering.
Research across the disciplines increasingly requires the integration of data science, statistics and machine learning to make cutting-edge advancements. Princeton University is dedicated to playing a vital role in preparing students to lead in these areas, and the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML) is a campus focal point for fulfilling this commitment.
Princeton University's Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) is based in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs with strong ties to the Princeton Environmental Institute. Many aspects of science and technology policy debates have been tackled with the tools of political and economic analysis that are the traditional strong suits of the Woodrow Wilson School.
Computation is now a crucial tool for discovery in the sciences, engineering, and increasingly so in the humanities. Scientific computation is also a diverse field.
The ORFE program places a strong emphasis on quantitative methods and mathematical modeling. Students in ORFE develop a unique set of skills that build upon a solid foundation in probability, statistics, and optimization.
The mission of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is to educate leaders in engineering and applied sciences through a rigorous graduate program that defines the frontiers of knowledge in our field, and prepare them for careers in academia, industry, and government. Our program emphasizes achieving fundamental understanding in a broad range of topics, a deep understanding in a particular area, and excellent communications skills.
The Department of Electrical Engineering doctoral program draws students from all over the world with most candidates entering the program directly after completing an undergraduate degree in disciplines such as electrical engineering, computer science or physics. Although our doctoral program is the largest at Princeton its scale still allows students to receive personal attention and extensive faculty interaction.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers programs of graduate study and research in the following two areas: mechanics, materials, and structures; and environmental engineering and water resources.
The department offers three degree programs of study: Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.), and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.). Students must be admitted to one of these three degree programs.
The Department of Computer Science accepts both beginning and advanced graduate students for study and research leading to the degree of Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). These degree programs are sufficiently flexible to adapt to individual plans of study and research.
The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering’s mission is to educate the leaders in chemical and biological engineering by conducting research that defines the frontiers of knowledge in our field. We prepare chemical and biological engineers for careers in teaching, research and development, and management in academia, government, and industry.
