Mary C. Boyce is Dean of Engineering at The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University in the City of New York and the Morris A. and Alma Schapiro Professor of Engineering. Prior to joining Columbia, Dean Boyce served on the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for over 25 years, leading the Mechanical Engineering Department from 2008 to 2013. 

Her research focuses on materials and mechanics, particularly in the areas on multi-scale and nonlinear mechanics of polymers and soft composites, both those that are man-made and those formed naturally. Her leadership in the field of mechanics of materials has expanded understanding of the interplay between micro-geometry and the inherent physical behavior of a material, which has led to innovative hybrid material designs with novel properties. Her research has been documented in over 170 archival journal articles spanning materials, mechanics, and physics. She has mentored over 40 M.S. thesis students and over 25 Ph.D. students. She has been widely recognized for her scholarly contributions to the field, including election as a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Engineering. 

 

Dean Boyce leads the education and research mission of Columbia Engineering with more than 175 faculty, 1500 undergraduate students, 2500 graduate students, and 100 postdoctoral fellows. She is committed to facilitating and celebrating the creativity and innovation of students and faculty. She has launched a Columbia MakerSpace, created Ignition Grants to support student physical and digital ventures, sponsored Columbia Design Challenge: Confronting the Ebola Crisis, and established the SEAS Senior Design Expo. She also has inaugurated SEAS participation in the Columbia Startup Lab, and expanded entrepreneurship programming and the Columbia Venture Competition in close partnership with the University’s Columbia Entrepreneurship Initiative. Dean Boyce is a strong advocate for enabling interdisciplinary research collaborations across the School and the University, including extensively transforming research spaces and expanding our faculty body in cross-cutting fields as wide ranging as Data Science, Nano Science, Sensing and Imaging, Sustainability, and Engineering in Medicine.

Dean Boyce is also a dedicated engineering educator and has been honored for her teaching at MIT, where she was named a MacVicar Faculty Fellow and received the Joseph Henry Keenan Innovation in Undergraduate Education Award.  She earned her BS degree in engineering science and mechanics from Virginia Tech, and her MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT.

Professor Boyce, together with her research group and collaborators, has published over 150 peer-reviewed archival journal publications; over 60 conference proceedings papers, and is a co-inventor on four issued and several pending U.S. Patents. Professor Boyce has mentored 40 S.M. and 25 Ph.D. theses as well as several postdoctoral associates. A list of Archival Refereed Journal Articles is provided below:
