Joining MAE

Deciding on a concentration is one of the most important decisions an undergraduate makes. That's why we make every effort to provide transparent information about the expectations, curriculum and culture of the department.

At any time, students can call or email Theresa Russo, undergraduate program coordinator, with questions. We are available to help guide you to make an informed, confident decision about your future. You can learn more about the program by exploring this website, watching the videos below, and reading through the undergraduate handbook
