Introduction to Rutgers University-New Brunswick School of Engineering

At Rutgers School of Engineering, our graduate students are valuable partners in research, instruction, and outreach. We offer graduate degree programs for dynamic students in 10 areas of study. With nearly $70 million in research expenditures and nearly 200 faculty members engaging in research on a broad range of topics that impact society, the nation, and the global community, the School of Engineering is a dynamic and academically supportive environment for pursuing graduate studies.

We have a nationally ranked program that offers graduate degrees in biomedical engineering; chemical engineering; civil and environmental engineering; electrical and computer engineering; energy systems; industrial engineering; materials science and engineering; mechanical and aerospace engineering, and packaging engineering. Rutgers SoE is engaged in leading edge research in a multitude of disciplines and has received national recognition for its technological advances. We have extensive labs with state-of-the-art equipment.

Size matters to us. The School of Engineering is small enough to promise the focus on graduate education demands but large enough for students to enjoy all the advantages, resources, and opportunities of a leading public research university.

Faculty

SoE faculty members are outstanding—every year, two or more of our faculty members, on average, receive the NSF CAREER Awards. Our faculty members are frequently honored by their peers with awards and fellowships from the most prestigious professional organizations. Books written by our faculty are used world-wide. Our full-time faculty members, as well as our adjunct faculty, are national and international experts in a broad range of fields. Our faculty is also affiliated with several research centers and organizations, both inside and outside Rutgers.

Friendly, Collegial Atmosphere

While our standards are high and admission is competitive, ours is a "student-friendly" school, where faculty members strive to educate students through research and courses, and to boost the development of students' careers through personal mentoring, group feedback environments, and opportunities for honing and marketing student skills. If you are an ambitious student who thrives in a supportive environment, you should seriously consider Rutgers School of Engineering.

Location

Our central location is extremely desirable for several reasons:

  • The cultural and social opportunities of New Brunswick, as well as of New York City (35 mi), Philadelphia (60 mi), Princeton (20 mi) and Newark (25 mi) are unsurpassed.
  • Rutgers is in the middle of the greatest concentration of industrial and government research laboratories in the U.S. (considering New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington D.C.). This increases opportunities for professional contact, as well as employment prospects.
  • Rutgers is located in a very diverse area, where almost every ethnic, cultural, and religious group in the country has a strong representation. The diversity of our area is our strength, making it possible for students from all parts of the U.S. and the world feel at home from your first day here.
