About Engineering at Dartmouth
Located in Hanover, New Hampshire, Dartmouth has one of the oldest professional schools of engineering in the country and features a single unified department of engineering sciences that fosters cross-disciplinary innovation in research and teaching. Graduate programs include the Master of Engineering Management (M.E.M.), M.S., Ph.D., dual degrees with The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, and the nation's first Ph.D. Innovation Program. Dartmouth undergraduates study engineering as part of a liberal arts education leading to the Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree; most majors take additional courses leading to the professional Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree.

In a nutshell...
Thayer School was founded by Dartmouth alumnus Sylvanus Thayer who believed that engineering in the context of a liberal arts education provides the best preparation for solving the world's problems.
At Dartmouth there is only one engineering department—Thayer School itself. One department, one building, one mission. Expertise from across the engineering disciplines converge to enhance innovation. People here share ideas, challenges, and inspiration and push each other to solve pressing global problems:
Collaboration fans out from Thayer School throughout the entire Dartmouth campus and beyond. Students partner with industry to work on specific challenges. Research projects pull in expertise from medicine and business, physics and computer science, public policy and studio art.
At Dartmouth, the box does not exist.
