McCormick School of Engineering, Northwestern University
At McCormick, we educate whole-brain™ leaders who thrive at the intersection of global challenges and the knowledge to solve them.
We foster whole-brain thinking™ through courses such as the freshman-year Engineering Design and Communication sequence, through connections to Northwestern’s strength in the humanities, and through opportunities to conduct research, study abroad, and gain entrepreneurial experiences. We take a comprehensive approach that combines career and personal development. Graduate students have the opportunity to learn essential management skills, in partnership with the Kellogg School of Management. They connect with their peers across disciplines to create a network that extends beyond their domain.
Engineering plays a critical role in addressing the world’s most pressing challenges. In order to lead the charge, we need a special type of engineer. McCormick educates engineers who have superior technical skills combined with divergent, creative thinking skills: whole-brain entrepreneurs, designers, communicators, and, ultimately, leaders who thrive at the great intersection, whether in industry, academia, or beyond.
