 The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science has a rich history.

The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science

The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science still remains an institution of manageable size within a great university. Committed to the educational philosophy that a broad, rigorous exposure to the liberal arts provides the surest chart with which an engineer can navigate the future, all undergraduates must complete a modified but equally rigorous version of Columbia College’s celebrated Core Curriculum. And all graduates are encouraged to be increasingly aware of the enormous impact their work can have on the society and on the earth.

Fu Foundation School of Engineering & Applied Science - Columbia

After a substantial grant of $26 million from Chinese businessman Z. Y. Fu, the engineering school was renamed again in 1997. The new name, as it is known today is the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. SEAS continues to be a world-class teaching and research institution, now with a large endowment of over $400 million, and sits under the Columbia umbrella endowment of $7.2 billion. As an initiative to make information more accessible, Columbia Engineering operates a highly viewed open-course video network similar to the one established in MIT. It is the only university to hold a share in the patent. The school continues research into nuclear science with the Robert A. Gross Plasma Physics Lab. The school is also home to (HBT-EP), and conducts further research into plasma physics with the (CTX), and the (CNT) experiment. The school's new department collaborates closely with the Medical School to conduct interdisciplinary researches such as materials science, environmental chemistry, medical digital libraries, digital government, new media technologies, and GK-12 education, bridging the biological and physical in the engineering world. The school is closely associated with Columbia's other departments, including Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Mathematics. It also engages in research and academic iniatives with the Business School, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Graduate School of Journalism, the School of International and Public Affairs, Law School, and the Teachers College.
