Thoughtful Scholarship & Career Preparation

Our academics are powerful because every decision is made with this question at the forefront, “What needs to be done to prepare students for a career?” This means we create our degrees with input from external industry thought leaders and CEOs, we provide innovative labs and state-of-the-art spaces for learning, and we require real-world experience in order to graduate.
