     "Engineers used to be thought of in terms of
     what they made. At McCormick we believe
     that engineers should be thought of in terms
     of how they think."

Welcome to McCormick!

The McCormick School of Engineering creates, explores and applies engineering and scientific principles to the solution of the most challenging problems and the advancement of society. McCormick maintains a unique balance between research and teaching, undergraduate and graduate education.

How do we do this?

  • Our faculty are collaborative and adaptable, crossing disciplines to create new knowledge, while maintaining a solid grounding in the fundamentals.

  • We deliver innovative research-based education to our students.

  • Our students become whole-brain™ engineers. They develop superior analytical, left-brain skills in addition to divergent, right-brain skills.

  • We support leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation through coursework and extracurricular activities.

  • We integrate design-thinking into all levels of our curriculum, since design is a process that fosters the crosslinking of disciplines and serves as a pathway for innovation.

  • We successfully partner with leaders in academia, industry, and society.

I encourage you to explore this site to learn more about McCormick’s excellence in research, engineering education and practice. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
