I like this program a lot! The faculty is great and doing a lot of interesting research. It really helps that Penn is the home to the GRASP Lab; there’s often a lot of overlap there. There's a lot of focus on AI – including the drones research you may have heard of. We do a lot of medical research and the EMBS students often work with The Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. I hope you join us here at Penn!
More than 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, envisioned an academic institution where classical learning would be united with a sound practical education in the arts and sciences. In Ben's own words, students ought to receive everything that is practical and everything that is ornamental. Today Penn, the oldest university in the nation, is fulfilling that vision by preparing students for a technological world, a world where leadership goes to those who have learned how to combine the practical and the ornamental.
