Thayer School of Engineering

The Thayer School of Engineering is one of the country's oldest professional schools of engineering. It was founded in 1867 with a grant from Sylvanus Thayer, a Dartmouth graduate of the class of 1807, a champion of engineering education, and later known as the father of West Point Military Academy. Today Thayer School features a single unified department of engineering sciences that fosters cross-disciplinary innovation in research and teaching.

Hands-on Learning

Our engineering students build things right from the start and work on real-world challenges—medical technologies, biofuels, hybrid cars, solar-powered robots—as they learn from experts in a range of engineering fields. 

How to Apply

Applicants interested in undergraduate engineering should apply directly to the Dartmouth College Office of Undergraduate Admissions, as all undergraduate applicants do. There is no separate engineering admissions process for first-year or transfer applicants to Dartmouth.
