Since its establishment in 1909, the McCormick School of Engineering has sought excellence in achieving its two parallel missions: to produce new knowledge and to engage and educate students. The history of McCormick shows that real-world problem solving has been a hallmark of engineering education at Northwestern for at least a century. McCormick fosters a culture in which innovation is not only encouraged, but expected. It is a culture that still thrives today, driving new initiatives, research discoveries, and superior education.
