Whole-Brain Engineering™

At McCormick, we empower our students to become whole-brain engineers. We integrate elements of left-brain thinking—analysis, logic, and math—with the high-level right-brain thinking that fosters intuition and creativity. The future belongs to those who can combine both ways of thinking to lead, innovate, and help solve the world's most pressing problems.
