    Meet Our Students

    Engineering undergrads describe how the Hajim School and its faculty enable them to find their passions, interact across disciplines on interesting projects and research, and still find time to pursue other interests.

    Our Commitment

    The Hajim School is committed to increasing the diversity of our students, staff, and faculty. We are working to ensure that women and those traditionally underrepresented in engineering are treated equitably and in a genuine spirit of inclusivity.

    We are proud to recognize more than 50 women and underrepresented minority faculty, staff, and alumni who serve as role models.
