Welcome to the place where you’ll learn to design the next-generation products and systems on which our society depends. Here we teach students to envision and implement the next big ideas in the automotive, defense, medical or energy industries, to name a few.
Our unique program provides hands-on experience with fully equipped laboratories and senior design capstone projects that let students to tackle a real engineering challenge at a local engineering company. We also place a heavy emphasis on internships and our students have gained valuable experience by working for esteemed engineering companies around the world.
Armed with this experience, our graduates go on to rewarding careers in almost every industry. They are inventors, CEOs, managers, consultants, designers and more. But regardless of their career, they are all on the forefront of engineering innovation.
A $30,000 study, conducted by three URI engineering students and faculty members, found that composite materials may be the long-term solution for Rhode Island’s infrastructure.
While most students at the University of Rhode Island went home during the winter break, nine mechanical engineering students learned what it takes to become entrepreneurs.
Thanks to a grant from The Champlin Foundation, a printed circuit board (PCB) fabrication station will enable students to gain hands-on experience in creating circuit prototypes.
