Princeton is a private research, Ivy League university. As a world-renowned research university, Princeton seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding. By design Princeton emphasizes comparatively short and intensive programs of doctoral study, and the number of graduate students who can be enrolled is limited by the educational and financial provisions of the Graduate School. Few Masters programs are also offered.

Research in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton aims to develop fundamental knowledge and to solve global problems.
