The world needs engineers with vision. At URI’s College of Engineering, you’ll find opportunities to work alongside visionary researchers developing technologies that will improve lives, expand knowledge, and traverse new frontiers.
Engineer your success! Engineering students play a central role in the new technologies being developed here. Guided by faculty mentors, they’re improving access to clean drinking water in rural communities around the world, developing new sensor technologies for robots, and discovering biomedical technologies that help identify and treat disease. Our students participate in internships around the world, some working on multinational teams to discover sustainable energy solutions or design fuel-efficient automotive systems. Become part of a research community that advances human potential—and believes in your potential to make your mark on the world.
The College of Engineering offers more than 25 programs from five departments. Our faculty win some of the most competitive grants and awards in their fields.
- NUWC Comes to URI College of Engineering to Meet and Interview Students - Hiring personnel and engineers from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport (NUWC) visited the URI College of Engineering recently to interview students and share information about the type of work conducted at NUWC.
- URI VOTES Using Engineering Tools to Support Democracy - Leading up to this year’s Election Day results, University of Rhode Island engineering professor Gretchen Macht and her team were thinking about how the votes would tally — but not for the reasons you might think.
- International Engineering Program a National Model for Global Learning - Long before words like global, interdisciplinary and experiential were common in higher education, URI launched its five-year International Engineering Program. The program has changed the way engineering students prepare to compete in the global marketplace.
- Professor Yan Sun Honored By Her Alma Mater For Career Accomplishments - URI Professor Yan (Lindsay) Sun returned to her alma mater, the University of Maryland, to receive a Distinguished Alumni Award. The award recognizes alumni who have made significant and meritorious contributions to their fields.
