European engineering school’s mission is to educate the next generation of engineering leaders, to create new knowledge, and to serve society.
We strive to attract the most talented people in the world: to create, to innovate, and to see the unseen. Close knit and collaborative, the school is embedded in a hub for technology innovation.
Our kind of engineer views praise as an invitation to tackle the next problem — and the harder, the better.
The things we have built — from genetic circuits to electrically driven shockwaves for water desalination — cross disciplines and departments, and in some cases, fuse them together. Advances in 3D printing, nanofabrication, robotics, and other technologies happen here every day.
The challenges we seek to solve, from cybersecurity to fusion energy to Alzheimer’s, require more than apps. Our kind of innovation can take decades.
Deep technology and science-based engineering are at the heart of what we do and who we are. Quantum computing, self-healing materials, programming bacteria to fix atmospheric nitrogen, and autonomous vehicles require rigor, passion, and a breakthrough, or two, or three.
After all, we are the kind of place that doesn’t just talk about “moon shots,” but one that helped accomplish the real thing. The notion of making a better world is not sloganeering. It’s what we do. It’s what we have always done.
