About the School of Engineering and Applied Science

Initially named the Corcoran Scientific School, the School of Engineering and Applied Science at GW was established by William Corcoran in 1884. In 1947, alumnus Charles Hook Tompkins donated $22,500 to build a new facility, which eventually became Tompkins Hall. Tompkins Hall continued to serve as the main facility for all engineering and computer disciplines at GW until January 2015 with the creation of the Science and Engineering Hall.

As a core center of research in the nation's capital, SEAS partners with institutions in the local area and nationwide to produce innovative research in all major engineering and computer-related fields of study. 

About George Washington University

The George Washington University was founded by an Act of Congress in 1821 based upon the desires of our nation's first president, George Washington. Believing the nation's capital to be a logical site for a national institution of higher learning, Washington's dream was carried out by the Rev. Luther Rice to establish the university with support from President James Monroe and 32 members of the U.S. Congress.
