When you connect meaningfully across cultures, you begin to see the world from a perspective that is different from your own. Taking on the world’s challenges requires the type of thinker who can look at a problem from multiple vantage points and find solutions others can’t see.
The International Engineering Program, or IEP, offers an unparalleled experience for students looking to become truly global engineers. You’ll earn two degrees simultaneously: a B.S. in an engineering discipline and a B.A. in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or Global Language Area Studies with a concentration in Japanese. By combining the power of a world-class engineering program, immersion in a foreign language and culture and a year studying and interning abroad, the five-year program prepares engineers who can work collaboratively and efficiently on international teams.

- URI Engineering Researchers Awarded $750k Grant on Floating Wind Turbines - The Biden administration has set a goal of deploying enough offshore wind turbines to produce 30 gigawatts—enough to power tens of millions of homes—by 2035. Key to that strategy is the development of floating wind turbines that can be built in vast areas of deeper water.
- URI College of Engineering Awarded $1.14 Million to Attract Under Represented Students - University of Rhode Island Associate Professor Samantha Meenach is the recipient of a federal grant that will help students from underrepresented groups pursue studies in undergraduate bioengineering and bioscience research programs and eventually apply to graduate school in these disciplines.
