About the school

The Tufts School of Engineering was founded in 1898 and houses six academic departments, three centres and the Tufts Gordon Institute. The graduate department offers master of science and Ph.D. degrees from each academic department. The school also has provisions for interdisciplinary degrees, which include Masters and joint PhD degrees in two streams – Materials Science and Engineering or a Master of Science in Bioengineering. The school has a two-fold mission. It aspires to educate students to learn the ethical application of science and technology. The second part of their mission is to employ the research happening at the campus to advance scientific and engineering knowledge. It aims to discover, develop and help create new technologies that can enhance the well-being and sustainability of society.

Where is the school located?

Medford is a small city located in Jackson County, Oregon. Its proximity to Boston helps the students pursuing higher education to get amazing internship and placement opportunities, making it a lucrative option for both national and international students.

Life at School of Engineering

The Student Life at the School of Engineering is not limited to academics and lab work. The students share a vibrant campus life, from student services to course electives, networking events, and everything in between.

The Engineering Student Council plays a vital role in the life of the engineering students at this school. It is a body that collaborates with the deans of the engineering schools and acts as the communication bridge between the students and the faculty. It makes provisions to provide opportunities to every student of the school with academic, pre-professional and extracurricular advancements. The council is also responsible for managing resources for the students to give them a better view of their career after completing their degree or a deeper insight into their discipline.

The school also provides residential facilities for the graduate students. There are six options for the students that are available for on-campus housing. All the rooms come with a twin XL bed along with a mattress. Most are single occupancy rooms but have shared laundry and kitchen facilities. The rest of the furniture in the rooms includes- a desk-chair set, a closet and a dresser set. All the students living in these apartments have access to a wireless internet connection. For more details, the students can visit the school's website

The students can also choose to live off-campus. Those willing to stay in these housing facilities must review their budget and finances beforehand. The average rent per person varies between $700 to $1000, excluding the utilities.

Additional benefits of studying at School of Engineering

Pursuing a master's degree in any discipline of Engineering can be quite challenging. The School of Engineering ensures that students have healthy physical, mental and emotional health. A dedicated team of professionals on campus can provide primary medical care, prevention services, health promotion, and mental health care when required.

Mental health can affect academic, personal and family life. To prevent that from happening, the professional mental health counsellors from the CMHS offer free services to the students of the School of Engineering. The students can make an appointment for a teleconference or in-person counselling.

The college has more than 350 organisations to choose from. Students become a part of JumboLife once they enrol in one of the student organisations or clubs.
