George Washington University

An education unlike any other

Since our capital city’s first days, people have traveled here for many reasons. They come to explore the past and to chart new futures. They come to ask questions and to seek expert answers. They come to start discourse and to remember in silence. They come to demand change and to be that change. They come to grow. They come to learn. They come to make history and join the ranks alongside many prominent GW alumni.

Our students come to GW for many of these same reasons. They come for passionate faculty, for diverse student groups, for Division I athletics, for once in a lifetime internships and for inspiring service opportunities. GW, like many universities, provides all of this. But our students come for something else, as well.

They don't just want to do a community service project. They want to meet, and then exceed, a service challenge from the First Lady of the United States.

They don't just want to view slides of art. They want to debate masterpieces in the galleries of world-class museums or dance on the stages of the Kennedy Center.

And they don’t just want to take an engineering course. They want to conduct research in a stunning new core lab facility with faculty who are quite literally shaping the world of tomorrow.

Housed in a city unlike any other, our students gain an education unlike any other. The whole city is our classroom, and our students emerge not just with a diploma, but with experiences that could only happen at GW.

World Class Faculty

SEAS is on a roll: in the span of eight years, we have recruited more than 45 new faculty members, most of whom graduated from top engineering and computer science programs in the U.S. and around the world: MIT, Georgia Tech, UC-Berkeley, Stanford, California Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins, Princeton, University of London, and other top schools.

Our new junior faculty have won more CAREER awards (the most prestigious grants the National Science Foundation gives to junior faculty) and other top research grants than at any time in our history. Meet three of them who are studying interesting challenges and developing a range of creative solutions to them.
