The Best of Both Worlds

Best of Both


The School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) is a small school within a medium-sized university, so our students receive both the opportunities that larger universities can offer and the attention that only smaller schools can provide. SEAS provides a solid and challenging engineering and computer science education in small classes taught by professors who know students by name.

As members of the small, tight knit SEAS community, students also benefit from the support of their peers and from mentorship programs run by upperclassmen, as well as from engineering student organizations that host everything from social activities to engineering competitions.

Outside of SEAS, students can participate in the many leadership, social, and club activities at GW--or go just beyond campus to take advantage of the opportunities that only Washington, DC provides.

While the city is famous for politics and beautiful monuments, it is also the place where new, national programs in science and technology are debated, created, launched, and managed. The DC-Metro region is also home to many of the world's pre-eminent research institutions and numerous high-tech companies. Internships or research projects at these institutions and companies are a wonderful complement to the classroom learning, and they give our students an advantage after they graduate and go on to graduate studies or a job.
