Explore the world at GW
The George Washington University prepares students to be the problem solvers of their time and to pursue the unknown, the untested, and the undiscovered. GW’s School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) provides ample opportunities to fantastic minds from all over the world as the only school of its type in the heart of Washington, DC.
SEAS has expanded the horizons of discovery in its Science and Engineering Hall—a 500,000-sq. ft., LEED Gold–certified building that integrates cutting-edge research with innovative instruction at every level of study. SEAS students also benefit from:
• Strong relationships with federal agencies and major corporations in the DC area that result in unique research and internship opportunities for every SEAS student
• 11 prominent GW research institutions and centers
• Smaller classes with greater access to professors throughout the entire undergraduate program
• The availability to double-major within SEAS; with majors in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences or the Elliott School of International Affairs; or with Business Administration, Exercise Science, or Public Health programs
• A far-reaching network of alumni in high-profile positions around the world
With support from the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), students are able to dive into some of the most impactful research topics that affect the world today. GW’s location provides unparalleled access to leading international institutions, multinational corporations, global media outlets, and the governments of 177 countries via their resident embassies. These hands-on learning opportunities provide the space for students to see how knowledge is generated and explore the possibilities of silencing schizophrenia, making car engines more efficient and less harmful to the environment, and taking their ideas to the next level at the GW New Venture Competition (NVC). If it shapes our world, we’re exploring it at GW.
