2. MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Engineering Massachusetts Institute of Technology's School of Engineering believes in the future.
Everything is changing, and the people making these changes are engineers: we make things, and we make things better. Our collective challenges are steep, and they are global. Improved systems and tools for generating energy, protecting our fragile environment, and protecting us from disease have the potential to improve the lived experience of people from all corners of the planet. Narrow approaches make for small solutions. MIT's strategy for addressing global challenges is to approach them on their own terms. By welcoming the widest range of knowledge, experience, and expertise under a single intellectual roof, our faculty, researchers, and students attack problems-and solve them-on the grandest scale.
Founded in 1861, MIT and its School of Engineering have a proud history of influencing the world through technological leadership and research innovation. MIT is one of the world's preeminent research universities: renowned for rigorous academic programs in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship; cutting-edge research; a diverse campus community; and a longstanding commitment to working with the public and private sectors to bring new knowledge to bear on the world's complex challenges.
The School of Engineering educates about 60 percent of MIT's undergraduates and 45 percent of our graduate students. Just over a third of MIT's faculty are in the School.
3. MIT Department of Mechanical EngineeringMechE - Our thrust is improving life on earth
Mechanical engineering at MIT is nearly as old as MIT itself, and its impact on the Institute and on society itself is easily demonstrated by noting the alignment of the department's evolution with key events and technological advances in the world.
MechE's origins trace back to the end of the American Civil War, in 1865. Its earliest areas of focus included extensive programs in power engineering and steam engines for both transportation and fixed use. By the mid-1870s, with the Industrial Revolution well underway in North America, the department became known officially as Course II. It innovated the use of lab subjects, giving students the opportunity to apply methodology to current engineering problems with hands-on lab work.
The specializations offered at the time reflected the industries of greatest growth, including marine engineering, locomotive engineering, textile engineering, and naval architecture. In 1893, marine engineering spun off from MechE as its own course and remained independent until it merged back (as Ocean Science and Engineering) in 2005. By the turn of the century through the advent of World War I, programs in steam turbine engineering, engine design, refrigeration, and aeronautical engineering set the stage for the technological advances to come.
4. MIT Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) The Department of Nuclear Science & Engineering provides educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in advancing the frontiers of nuclear science and engineering and in developing applications of nuclear technology for the benefit of society and the environment. We prepare our students to make contributions to the scientific fundamentals of our field; to the development and engineering of nuclear systems for energy generation, security, health care, and other applications; and to the integration of nuclear systems into society and the natural environment.
5. MIT Engineering Systems Division ESD aims to solve complex engineering systems problems by integrating approaches based on engineering, management, and social sciences—using new framing and modeling methodologies. ESD seeks to facilitate the beneficial application of engineering systems principles and properties by expanding the set of problems addressed by engineers, and to position its graduates as leaders in tackling society’s challenges.
6. Peking University - School of EngineeringHome to distinguished faculty
The 105 faculty and teaching and research staff at our college are renowned both at home and abroad in their individual fields. Most of the faculty at has overseas experience, working or studying in leading universities prior to or during their work for the College of Engineering. They are conducting cutting-edge research in fields ranging from physical sciences and medicine to public health and industrial management.
- Provide the best educational environment for students to reach their full potential in the study of engineering science and as individuals;
- Become a world-class research center that is devoted to the discovery and application of new knowledge in engineering and science;
- Become a national base of engineering research and education, a center of future technology, a driving force for national economic growth, and a cradle for educating future engineering leaders and entrepreneurs.
8. UC Berkeley College of Engineering Berkeley Engineering is a community that is dedicated to creating tomorrow's leaders and supporting today's pioneers. Students and researchers from around the world are drawn to Berkeley by its outstanding reputation, its internationally recognized faculty, and its strong tradition of impact in research and teaching.
Earlier Berkeley engineers brought water to California's great agricultural lands, pioneered the microelectronics that seeded Silicon Valley, and helped build the unbuildable in structures like Hoover Dam and the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, Berkeley engineers in every field remain at the center of technological innovation worldwide.
9. University of Cambridge - Department of Engineering The Department of Engineering is the largest department in the University of Cambridge, representing approximately 10% of the University's activities by the majority of common metrics, and is one of Europe's largest integrated engineering departments. It achieves the highest standards in both research and teaching. Its international reputation attracts the best students, academics, sponsors and partners from around the world.
10. University of Michigan - College of Engineering At Michigan Engineering, students and faculty are encouraged to work across engineering disciplines and build competencies beyond engineering. The College supports these endeavors with numerous resources.
