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.

"McCormick allows you to be an engineer but it also allows you to experience other things that might be of interest to you, passions that exist outside of engineering that you could integrate into your engineering curriculum."
