Message from the Chair

David Chopp, Chair, Engineering Sciences and Applied MathematicsWelcome to the Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics at Northwestern University.

The department was formed in 1976-77 on the basis of an existing engineering sciences department and quickly became one of the leading applied mathematics programs in the world.

We in the Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics are concerned with the formulation and solution of mathematics problems arising in engineering, as well as in the natural and social sciences. Strong interdisciplinary research and collaboration is a hallmark of the department.

I invite you to explore these pages to learn more about the programs we offer at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and the transformative research that is being conducted by our faculty members.

Chair and Professor of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics
