Schools & Colleges Overview

School of Engineering

With a faculty known for research in areas as diverse as bionic limbs and traffic safety, the School of Engineering is devoted to training the next generation of innovators and inventors. Academic departments in such fields as biomedical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and other engineering disciplines train students in the specialized knowledge demanded by 21st-century engineering projects and research. Additional learning opportunities are provided by the school’s research units, such as the Center for Structures in Extreme Environments. And, as a professional school within Rutgers, the School of Engineering offers the best of both worlds—a close-knit group of highly motivated students and faculty and the extensive offerings of a major public research institution.
