Build a better future

At URI, our faculty in the Department of Mechanical, Industrial, and Systems Engineering are recognized as world-class leaders in research areas such as experimental mechanics, structural response under extreme conditions, health monitoring, mechatronics and autonomous systems, renewable energy, heat transfer, undersea vehicle technologies, human factors, voting systems, cyber-physical security, Industry 4.0, and machine learning.

Undergraduate students work side-by-side in research laboratories with faculty and graduate students, complete internships with industry leaders both nationally and abroad, and compete in national student competitions. All students undertake a culminating, year-long senior capstone experience where they collaborate in teams to tackle real-world problems defined, funded, and mentored by industry and government partners. Additionally, students have the opportunity to pursue minors in entrepreneurship, robotics, or nuclear engineering.
