The Engineering subgroup is for the broad array of engineering disciplines at Tufts – Biomedical, Civil, Chemical, Computer, Electrical, Environmental and Mechanical. Many engineers work directly as engineers in their own field, but the comprehensive curriculum, group projects, problem solving and tool knowledge gained from Tufts experiences leads many students to use their engineering backgrounds in other fields including finance, consulting, project management, sales, and education, to name a few. The resources below are organized by engineering type.
