About Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) serves as the connector and integrator of Harvard’s teaching and research efforts in engineering, applied sciences, and technology. Our core tenets—educating broad-minded students; interdisciplinary research; integration across disciplines; and balancing theory, experimentation, and practice—create an unmatched environme...nt for learning and exploration. Through collaboration with researchers from all parts of Harvard, other universities, and corporate and foundation partners, we bring discovery and innovation directly to bear on improving human life and society.
SEAS is organized around world-class teaching and learning at the bachelors, masters and doctoral levels (in applied mathematics, applied physics, computer science, bioengineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and environmental science and engineering) and world-changing research. At the undergraduate level, our educational mission is twofold:
• Engineering for All: to provide all Harvard undergraduates with an understanding of technology, engineering design, and the application of scientific and mathematical knowledge that they will require, as the next generation of leaders, to navigate in an increasingly complex technological world;
• Broad-Minded Engineers and Applied Scientists: to give undergraduate concentrators a rigorous education of depth and breadth, combining a strong technical foundation in fundamental engineering and applied sciences with critical thinking, creativity, design, entrepreneurship, and a grounding in the liberal arts that allows them to understand the societal context of their technical work.
