Dartmouth College is a private research university located in Hanover, New Hampshire. It was established as early as 1769 (yes, nearly 250 years ago) as part of the British Empire, and has over time achieved the Ivy League status. It has the lowest student enrollment amongst all Ivy League schools, which is why it isn’t too easy to get in inspite of the schools low rank. Students looking to Master in Engineering Management (MEM) should keep it as one of their top options.

By itself Hanover is a tiny little college town with not much to boast of, apart from Dartmouth itself. As for big cities around it, only Boston, which is a good 111 miles away, comes to mind. The closest international airport is also about 80 miles away.


Dartmouth is made on a completely rural campus in Hanover. Spread over 269 acres, this Ivy League College has a beautiful blend of ancient as well modernistic buildings. All of which have absolutely state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. The Thayer School of Engineering, where you probably will be, has its own buildings as well as the dedicated library which has tens of thousands of volumes covering all possible areas. Sadly, there are no cafeterias and bars on the campus.

Residing Options

Although on campus is very much available (at a rather high cost of $7,000 per year), many graduate students tend to live off campus in areas like Lebanon Street and School Street. The rentals can range from $500 to $1,000 but a lot of that can get split if you’re able to handle a couple of roommates and which you should.


Dartmouth is popular mainly for its undergraduate courses and less for its graduate programs. Although it has been ranked ahead of universities like Harvard, Stanford, and Yale for its undergrad programs, it somehow hasn’t built a reputation for its degree courses inspite of high levels of research activities. That being sad, the teaching process at Dartmouth is completely unique, in ways known only by the excellent faculty there.

Jobs and placements

The engineering jobs at Dartmouth aren’t really out of the world, but fortunately the Career Centre is helpful and ensures you get something you like.
