Columbia Engineering offers broad-based instruction within a major research university and is ideally suited to educate tomorrow’s engineering leaders and encourage technical literacy.
Our engineering and applied science departments and programs, which are among the nation’s oldest and most influential, embrace new technologies and interdisciplinary possibilities.
Innovative approaches—including computer-assisted design, the use of “smart” materials, and collaborations with other Columbia departments in basic science, medicine, and business—are opening frontiers in an expanding host of fields: from financial engineering to corrosion control, and nanotechnology to biomedical engineering.
