The George Washington University School of Engineering & Applied Science

The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science is one of the leading engineering research institutions located in the heart of our nation's capital. GW Engineering programs and degrees prepare professionals to be confident, capable, creative, and agile during a lifelong learning that will open new career horizons. We strive to create a vibrant atmosphere, with interaction and joint ventures among faculty, students, and the abundant resources available in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

GW Engineering promotes an interdisciplinary, impact-oriented approach to teaching, research, and innovation. GW Engineering partners with other GW schools and colleges and with companies and government agencies around DC and the world to connect engineering to other disciplines and to responsibly translate innovations to society. These approaches position GW students for leadership and to leverage the power of engineering and computing to achieve societal impact. GW Engineering offers a breadth of expertise in engineering and computer science fields by offering master’s and doctoral degree programs along with graduate certificate programs.

Washington, DC

Students studying at GW Engineering have opportunities to gain research experiences on and off campus due to GW’s unique location surrounded by major research funding institutions in the Washington, DC metro area including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the National Academy of Sciences. Students also have access to state-of-the-art research facilities located on campus in the Science and Engineering Hall, which epitomizes GW’s investment in research infrastructure and facilities that enable innovative research and teaching.

With these facilities at their disposal, GW researchers and students are poised to expand the depth and breadth of human knowledge. Utilizing the building’s specialized labs, including the Class 100 Nanofabrication Clean-room, the three-story high-bay lab featuring a reinforced “strong-wall” and “strong-floor”, and five high resolution imaging suites, faculty members and students possess the capabilities to conduct research on everything from large aerospace structures to the next generation of nanotechnology.


We offer Master of Science (M.S.) degrees across 11 fields of study in engineering and computer science:


GW Engineering offers a variety of merit-based scholarship awards for on-campus master's degree program students. These awards are tuition discounts that currently range from 25-75%. The awards are valid for the entire duration of the master's degree program as long as the award recipient is in good academic standing. These awards are only allocated to incoming master's degree program students during the admissions process. There is no separate application for students to be considered for scholarships/funding!
