Innovation Open House

Every Thursday in August 2020 we arranged for a specialized virtual visit for prospective students interested in learning about how innovation inspires the undergraduate experience. These events were hosted by the Dartmouth College Office of Admissions in partnership with our faculty in Human Centered Design, Engineering, and the Digital Arts. Each session featured different Dartmouth faculty members and current students who will discuss their ongoing work around engineering and innovation.


Engineering & Innovation Summer Series #1

Alexis Abramson is the 13th dean of Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. During the Obama administration, Abramson served as chief scientist and manager of the Emerging Technologies Division at the U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Program, and in 2018, she served as technical adviser for Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a $1 billion effort launched by Bill Gates to combat human-driven climate change. As a leader in sustainable energy technology and advanced energy research, Abramson has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed publications. Professor Abrahmson will share an overview of what it means to study engineering at Dartmouth, and how the Thayer School's approach to engineering is distinctive. (Recorded August 6, 2020)
