A Welcome from Dean Mason

The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago is the most exciting school of engineering in the country. We leverage eight scientific and engineering disciplines to explore key themes which focus on grand challenge problems that require interdisciplinary, solution-driven research.

By bringing together leading scientists and engineers around clear goals, we are addressing some of the most significant issues facing the world today from the molecular level up – including water scarcity, information security, healthcare, and sustainable energy.

Importantly, we also are training students to become the next generation of leaders in science, engineering, and beyond. The value of an inclusive, interdisciplinary education in today’s world cannot be overstated. PME students learn to work successfully alongside faculty and each other, as well as with industry and government partners. They are entrepreneurial by nature and embrace a wide variety of perspectives and ideas.

With our unique approach, PME is poised for unprecedented growth. We continue to increase our engagement with other areas of campus, with the local community, and with Argonne, Fermilab, and our great city of Chicago. We have the unprecedented opportunity to drive innovation and consider new teaching and research areas that provide real-world results.

I encourage you to explore all that the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering has to offer, and the world-class work we are doing to develop solutions to problems that have a profound effect on humanity and quality of life.
