Now Playing at the College
The College of Engineering is a global leader in educating the next generations of world-class scholars and researchers who shape the world in which we live. We’re a college where, through small classes and big research, students become creative problem solvers and big thinkers, as they apply science and technology to improve the very fabric of our world.
Our faculty are leaders in their fields with programs and research as unique and diverse as our students. We offer eight undergraduate degrees and graduate programs in five disciplines. Our students can also choose from accelerated five-year B.S./M.S. degree programs in all majors.
In addition, the College of Engineering enjoys a highly regarded global reputation through its distinctive International Engineering Program (IEP). The unique five-year program leads students to two degrees: a B.S. in engineering and a B.A. in German, Spanish, French, or Chinese. Students also spend a year abroad, taking courses at our partner universities and gain valuable engineering experience through paid internships with leading international engineering companies.
We invite you to explore our website and visit us to learn more about how we’re thinking big in a small, beautiful place.
Alissa McKechnie chose to study mechanical engineering because she likes to tinker with things. As a student in the International Engineering Program, she learned to design cutting-edge technology plus became fluent in Chinese after spending a year in China interning for Hasbro.

There are more than 15 million refugees in the world. Millions of them live in squalor with limited shelter. For two University of Rhode Island professors and their class, that’s unacceptable.
