Why St. Louis?

Check out the city's endless options in dining, entertainment, cultural attractions and service opportunities. And it maintains a low cost of living compared to other similarly-sized metropolitan areas.

Strategic Plan: From Excellence to Impact

This vision and its supporting priorities and initiatives will accelerate the progress McKelvey Engineering has made in the past six years, while sharpening the school's focus on the impact we make on our students, employees, the St. Louis region, and society at large.

Equity. Diversity and Inclusion

We realize there is an opportunity for growth in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion, and we are committed to addressing longstanding social injustice and inequality within the school and larger community. We are developing new programs, policies and resources, available on this page, but most importantly, we are listening. By working together, we can enact change.


"The McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis is a leader in providing scientific insights and enabling technologies critical to solving fundamental research challenges of the world today and in preparing students for the rapidly changing world of tomorrow." - Dean Aaron Bobick
