About Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
In our rapidly transforming world, engineering plays an ever more central role—in advancing basic science, creating tools and everyday technologies, driving economic development, and meeting societal challenges in areas from energy to the environment to human health.
We have an exceptional opportunity to educate future engineers who will connect ideas in unexpected ways, integrate technological i...nnovations into daily life, and apply their discoveries to make a positive impact in the world.
At the same time, we can provide students from all concentrations with a deeper understanding of the role of engineering and technology in today’s world.
To remain a great university with a global reach, Harvard must have research programs commensurate with the changing needs of the present and the challenges of the future.
Ensuring that engineering and applied sciences have the appropriate scale and scope is integral to achieving this goal.
The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, dedicated to basic and application-oriented research, reflects our genesis, builds upon our recent successes, and looks to the future.
